Hunt? Please! Plus other Mail Pompey 'rumours'
The Mail has plenty to 'offer' us late this Tuesday evening - it 'claims' that Stephen Hunt 'is talking to Portsmouth over a £3.5m move.' Apparently 'Reading have dropped their asking price' for the winger who has been repeatedly linked with Everton.
'If' there is any truth to this at all I would be delighted, as Hunt can offer us something exciting from a wide midfield role as well as score goals, he would be a fantastic signing - but time will tell...
Ross McCormack, who sky sports 'understand' we have made an approach for, is also mentioned - The Mail says we are 'also talking to Cardiff striker Ross McCormack over a £3m deal.' Again, time will tell but I do not really know either way on this one.
We are also 'said' to be 'weighing up a deal' for trialist Modeste M'Bami and are also 'due to hold talks' with Mahamadou Dabo, a defender who plays for St Etienne.
How are we going to pay for some, or all, or these deals?
Apparently we plan to sell John Utaka to Stoke for £6m... I could live with that, even though you could almost guarantee that the Nigerian would become 'a superstar' should he move on!
Our attempts to sign Nikola Kalinic 'could stall due to red tape' though? It is said that the move for the Croatian 'may fall foul of work permit regulations.' That would be a setback as the guy looks a decent prospect and 'seems' keen to play for us as well.
Plenty to sink your teeth in to here from The Mail - I wonder how much of it actually will come true!
