Dindane good to go! Or maybe not?

Dindane good to go! Or maybe not?

The 'reports' are pretty conflicting on this issue guys!

Sky sports news 'understands' that Aruna Dindane HAS been granted permission to play in our remaining games, including the FA cup final, without it costing us the £4m that Lens would receive for him playing another game for us...

He would then move on to either Blackburn, Newcastle or Panathaniakos in the summer, apparently.

Being able to play, and fee free, is something that The News are reporting too...

Although ESPN Soccernet's 'reports' are totally different! They say that Lens HAVE granted him permission to play in the cup final, but the cup final ONLY and still want a fee of £2m for this?!

This is 'said' to have left Admin Andy, and there are some quotes, less from impressed with him heading to France to discuss this - clearly he has never heard of a telephone, or an online conference facility, would this not be cheaper and easier? Especially with travel restrictions as they are. Unless he is meeting Sacha Gaydamak in France as well or something? This is just speculation on my part mind!

I guess all we can do is wait and see what happens.

If/when we get 'official' word on The Pompey Site this is when we will know what is what, right...

Although the guy has not provided what we hoped for, I would still want him in our starting 11 in every game if possible. If the guy has nothing, he is very intelligent and wins alot of important free kicks. We have seen doing this very often against Spuds!

I don't think the official site will be saying anything about this.

Other news outlets have the fee at £200k. Rug, as someone who lived frog side and has a son over their I can tell you French business people don't like video conferencing or telephone calls, they just won't do it, they want to see your eyes.

It's the same with year head teachers when you boy has his second detention. Just out of interest when and how has Admin got to france and back when no one else can manage it?

"Aruna in on his way back with a letter from Lens," Pompey's administrator Andrew Andronikou told BBC Sport. "I've been told he can play the rest of our games - including the Chelsea final - and we won't have to pay any money."
