Stephen Hunt is a player that is being 'linked' with Pompey, and he is most certainly a player that I would be delighted to see us sign, but according to The Reading Chronicle this would come at a cost...
And I am not talking money costs, they 'report' that Reading want Dave Nugent in exchange for Hunt?
It is 'said' that Reading director of football Nick Hammond was at pre-season friendlies with Basingstoke and Eastleigh, leaving Basingstoke after Nugent went off - not that he would have been impressed that day! Against Eastleigh certainly more so as he scored 3 very well taken goals.
As Nugent has repeatedly said that he wants to prove himself I cannot see him accepting this move to be honest, and as much as I would like us to sign Hunt I would not want Nugent to go in order to sign him! Maybe I am foolish but I am sticking to the thoughts that I still feel he can come good, if used as an out and out striker.
At the moment it would appear that a swap deal would be our only option though? In which case I would forgo the Hunt signing...
The same report also says that Reading are 'interested' in Marc Wilson?
I seriously hope that we would not even consider letting him go as in my thinking, despite not actually knowing what his best position is, I really do think this guy has a future ahead of him - he certainly would have impressed Hammond against Basingstoke, as he was one of a very limited number that impressed that day.
Wilson also looks to have bulked up a bit since his injury setback, which again can only be a good thing for him - a quality footballer in the making for me that I would only let go out on a short-term loan...
And 'according' to The Nottingham Evening Post they feel that Matty Ritchie could be staying with Pompey?
An offer has been made, but according to their 'reports' the winger has flown out to Portugal with the rest of the Pompey squad - which, if true would seem to suggest that a move away from Pompey is not as 'imminent' as it was appearing?
Time will tell on this, and all issues above though...
Oh, and a little bit more on Nikola Kalinic - whilst it is 'thought' that the deal has fallen through, this might not be the case?
No further articles, devoted purely to this issue, will be added until we know one way or the other what is going on, but there is a thread in the forum that has been running for the past 18-hours or so that allows you to keep up with the 'latest developments', click - here...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
