Derbyshire and cash for Boateng? Yes please!

Listening to Pompey's game against Bournemouth on The Quay tonight I heard them say that Admin Andy is in talks with Olympiakos about a deal to take Kevin-Prince Boateng to Greece.

That in itself is nothing 'special', although it was the following thoughts that we are trying to get cash plus Matt Derbyshire for Boateng that interested me more...

I remember Derbyshire from his Blackburn days and he knows where the net is so if we could pull this off we would have done extremely well!

By all accounts Olympiakos are looking to offload the striker, although I would be amazed if premier league clubs are not looking at the former England U21 international.

If we could do a deal to not only sell Boateng, therefore bringing in some money and getting his wages off the wage bill, and bring in Derbyshire this would be a cracking deal!

Then again this is Pompey we are talking about so this will not happen, will it...

I'd take that with both hands. Great deal if it does go through

time to rip some Greek arms off, i fancied getting Derbyshire when we were Premier, now it would be more of a coup!

Just back from Bournemouth - spirited display by both sides and an entertaining game .. Cotterill seems to have maintained the Avram Grant spirit amd good to see Ashdown Mullins Brown & Nugent give the fans (about 1500 I reckon) a good old clap at the end.. ahh it's got to see the blues back in action

oh and Derbyshire for KPB .. yes please
Chix
oh hell yea i might even suggest forgetting the extra cash and just doing a straight swap although we need the money so maybe not lol

wouldnt he want more than 10k a week?
nodster
That would be a great deal, I would go to the surgeon, have them perform a procedure to attach an extra arm to me, just so I could grab the deal with 3 hands.

derbtshire was at Plymouth on loan but never got a game, went back to Rovers and did very well...yep i would get him asap...but we cant, we have a transfer embargo and this will remain i fear
plymouth graham
Makes a lot of sense but I agree Derbyshire would want to get back to the PL. And the 10k a week ceiling might be a problem as nodster says.
