Kranjcar on his way? But others arriving!

Kranjcar on his way? But others arriving!

The latest player to join Spurs, or should we call them Pompey MKII, looks like being Niko Kranjcar.

'Sky sports sources understand' that Jamie's Dad is closing in on a deal for the Croatian.

It never ceases to amaze me the pedestal that this guy is put on, yep on his day he can be a world-beater but as said earlier today when speaking about Niko the problem is he rarely has his day - well not at club level anyway...

We cannot afford to carry passengers this season, and as it is for me we have been carrying him and would just be 'accommodating him' with the new signings made the past few days so if we can get a decent amount of money for him now it is best to cash in now than let him leave for nothing next summer - and he has made it clear this is what he will do.

Obviously he is a quality player but I will not shed that many tears at losing him in all honesty - assuming a deal is wrapped up...

Plenty of players are 'said' to be coming the other way before 5pm tomorrow though with 'reports' from Portugal claiming that Benfica midfielder Hassan Yebda has agreed to a season long loan move.

The 25-year-old was a regular with Benfica last season but has fallen down the pecking order after summer arrivals with Pompey nipping in to agree the loan deal ahead of Everton and Blackburn?

Until this is official on The Pompey Site of course it is not official though - even though the reports claim it to be 'official'.

'Word on the street' tell us that Tal Ben Haim is believed to be at the club now undergoing a medical ahead of a move from Citeh with Bolo Zenden also believed to be at Fratton along with Amr Zaki, although reports suggest that an offer for the Egyptian striker has been rejected?

It promises to be an eventful evening and day tomorrow - I just hope that we keep David James, and if selling Kranjcar enables this so be it...

Silly boy if he does. Once Modric is fit he'll be a bench warmer. He's been one of my favourite players of the last 24 months but this season he's consistently been our worst player. Not the sort of player we need in a relegation fight. Thanks but no thanks Niko - time for you to ***** off and take your sulking face elsewhere.

Thank god Kranjcar is going, long overdue in my opinion. We've kept him in the side for far too long just on a few good performances. Atleast it now leaves room for a proper left winger to come in, or maybe a cheeky bid for Matty Taylor?

Evans - Right back or right midfield?

Drew Talbot and Adam Buxton are fit but Gareth Evans continues to fill in at right back. Should this change? If so where would it leave the battle between Evans and Carl Baker?
