David James is just one of several names than many would think, if not expect, to move on this month although Peter Storrie has again told The News this is not the case.
Although offers for players will be 'considered', he says there has been no interest in James: 'if someone makes an offer for a player they will consider it - and there have been some enquiries. But not a single one has come for David James.
'There has been no interest whatsoever and I am not sure where all this talk of interest is all coming from.
'As far as we're concerned, he will remain here. There has been no interest in David James.'
Déjà vu anyone?
We seem to be going through the same sort of situation with James again this month as we did in August, at least the closing stages of it...
Another keeper 'linked' with a move away from Pompey is, and also has been on and off for a while, Jamie Ashdown with QPR 'said' to be interested.
Storrie commented on this as well, saying there has been an interest but nothing has been decided yet: 'I admit there is interest in Jamie Ashdown and Paul Hart would like him, but we have not made a decision at this stage.
'We have already got a lot of players away without losing any more. We will know in the next few days about that one.'
To be honest I would sell the guy - I doubt he is on massive wages but I would also imagine that he is not one of the lowest earners, so these wages are wages that we could save.
So, from our point of view I would offload a few months before his contract and get a small fee in - from his point of view if he wants to play football he will move on, right?
If only it was that simple...
For me, the MOST worrying bit of 'transfer speculation' is that of an interest from Sunderland in Younes Kaboul.
Sky sports 'claim' that Sunderland, impressed by his form for us this season in particular against them back along, are the first team to make a move for him with Lyon also 'keen'.
A lot depends on how much we do, or do not need to sell...
Storrie recently said that departures were 'inevitable', but now he is more along the lines of 'it is down to the owners' but we do not necessarily have to sell.
Whereas Mark Jacob has now said that players do not have to be sold but if good offers come in then they might - which is fair enough I guess?
Lets just hope that departures are not essential, although time will tell I guess...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
