Double Ivorian deal?
News that Aruna Dindane is 'going to sign for Pompey' is something that has become pretty strong, and more than 'gossip' - this deal is 'expected' to be announced anytime, with some 'reports' saying that he was at the game at the weekend?
Sky sports is reporting that 'Pompey have agreed a deal with his club Lens, and the transfer should be finalised shortly,' with it also said that they 'understand' the striker has been offered a 2-year contract with the option of a further year.
Again, according to sky sports and what they 'understand', Dindane's Ivory Coast international teammate Steve Gohouri could join him at Pompey?
The defender is 'said 'to be set to undergo a trial this week, arriving on Sunday night, and 'will hope to impress Hart enough to earn a deal.'
Another defender would not go a miss, but this is the week were we seriously need to look at bringing in offensive, and not that many defensive, options...
No 'serious' concern for James...
Paul Hart has said that the latest knee problem that David James has picked up is not connected with his previous knee injury - it is the same knee but a different problem...
James will go for a scan today but Hart feels it is nothing more than 'bone bruising' after a knock to this in the defeat at Birmingham last week.
He probably would not have played in the league cup game tomorrow anyway but this is now a definite with either Asmir Begovic continuing or Antti Niemi given his Pompey debut?
Either way, we just have to hope that this is nothing serious and he can return for the game against Citeh on Sunday, as I suspect whoever is in goal will be very busy...
