Williamson on his way?
Mike Williamson, the '£3m' signing from Watford, could be on the move WITHOUT ever kicking a ball for Pompey!
His arrival was something of a surprise, but his lack of appearances has just been 'puzzling' to say they least and he 'could' be on the move to Newcastle, at least this is what sky sports 'understands'...
A loan move to the Championship leaders is 'said' to be the option that they prefer although 'if the price is right' they could look into a permanent signing?
To be honest I cannot see a loan doing him any harm as we clearly are NOT going to be giving him and 1st team football anytime soon - he is not even getting a look-in for the FA cup!
I would image that we quite clearly activate some form of 'fast tracked payment' to Watford if he plays a competitive game for us, right? Hence his lack of involvement.
'If' we did sell surely we could not sell as a loss after less than 6-months, that would just be ludicrous, then again I guess the deal is worth 'up to £3m' so how much would we lose, depending on what had been paid 'up front'...
Another of our defenders, and our 'star defender' at that, Younes Kaboul continues to be 'linked' with an exit and according to The Mail Lille have 'joined the race' for his signature, a queue that is 'said' to contain Citeh, Sunderland and Lyon already.
£9m is claimed to be on the table, but we will knock this back - as we are supposed to have knocked back larger bids already - in favour of more money, closer to the £14m price tag given. There is no mention that we have knocked back because he is not for sale, although to be fair every player has a price!
I guess time will tell on this issue, as it will the thoughts of us taking our 'fight' with the premier league over withheld money and the continued transfer embargo to a court of arbitration to get a 'third party' to rule on this.
Although this issue is 'said' to be coming to a head sooner rather than later, or this action will happen, even though it would cause further delays to a decision on what happens...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
