James deal called off

James deal called off

David James' proposed move to Stoke has fallen through after Stoke 'pulled the plug' on the deal after failing to reach an agreement with us by a certain time and over certain issues...

Stoke wanted to conclude the deal by midday today so he could feature for them against Liverpool tomorrow but as this did not happen they have said that the deal is off!

It is also 'thought' that as they wanted us to pay half his wages, something that we are thought to have disagreed on, with us having stood our ground on this issue this was also a factor in the deal falling through.

What happens next for James remains unknown...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

We wont play him if rumours are true about triggering a new deal? He wont get into world cup if he doesnt play? S i assume its what he wants more? World cup or money? else he could have done a deal to mutually agree to terminate contract and negotiate a lower wage elsewhere? Money wins then i assume?

Interesting, if he plays for us then we have to offer a new contract and if he sits on the bench then Fabio wont select for the WC. He's got to find another taker in Jan or could be a long boring season for him.

If they wanted us to pay half his wages then i am not surprised the deal was not completed and the transfer embargo is still not lifted!!! and we may have to wait another two to three months for investors. I think we will be going down this season and will have to rebuild when we are in the championship. James is going to feel not wanted now, and kaboul will be off soon so we can get this embargo lifted and then hopefully someone can wave a magic wand and tranfer money becomes available.

Don't think he will play for us again this season if then new contract rumours are true, the Stoke move would of been good for him but looks like he has to hang around Pompey for the rest of the season.

nice for us to stand our ground for once. We seem to be too much of a push overs sometimes. We especially need to show a strong stance in our precarious position or else we'll be selling Kaboul for a tenner!

Sounds like they tried to hold us to ransom, stuff 'em. From what I read earlier, Jamo has played 12 and 20 would trigger a new deal? So he might play for us again....unlikely though.

They'll be back I think. Looks like their No 1 Sorensen is keen on a deal out of there, play hard ball Pompey, in fact, make them pay a fee (or sell him) and make them pay the full whack !!! James will want to play regular footy so up to him also to drop his wage demands. Funny the hipocrasy in all this, and DJ talking about unreasonable wage demands etc....Whats more important Jamo WORLD CUP PLACE or LOADSA WONGA ??? Time will tell. Well done PFC stand firm !! PUP
