Dos Santos/Boateng/James 'talk'
Getting our transfer embargo lifted I something that we are battling against, well we continue to battle again but 'if' we get this lifted it has always been said that Avram Grant has players lined up and Giovani dos Santos has been a 'long-term' name 'linked' with us...
Apparently, in The News of the World - as is all the transfer talk here - the Spurs midfielder/striker will join us on loan next week 'if' this embargo is lifted.
I would not be surprised to see the guy arrive on loan to be honest, his name seems to have been 'linked' too many times and for too long, although 'should' this happen where does this leave us with Jamie O'Hara?
You cannot loan two players from any one premier league club, can you?
The first talk of players going today sees Kevin-Prince Boateng linked with a move to Sunderland?
A £7m price is 'said' to have been put on his head whereas Sunderland want to pay only £5m.
Although are we not going back into this whole we CANNOT sell him anyway due to the Fifa ruling about him being unable to play for a 3rd team in anyone season...
Finally, David James' move to Stoke fell throw on Friday although this deal 'could' be resurrected this week.
Yet again this 'Pompey source' said: 'there are still talks going on to resurrect the deal. We hope a compromise can be reached.
'James seems keen to go, and manager Avram Grant knows he has an able deputy in Asmir Begovic, so it is hoped a compromise over wages can be reached.'
To be honest my stance remains the same with James, I still think he is a fantastic keeper but sometimes needs must and I think we MUST offload him as it will be in everyone's best interest.
Although we cannot do Stoke, or anyone else, too many favours in this, or any other, deal - then again we cannot cut off our nose to spite our face can we...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
