Derbyshire a 'non-starter'
A 'mooted' move to Pompey for Matt Derbyshire has been 'dismissed'.
Kevin-Prince Boateng and cash, £2m by all accounts, would have been received from Olympiakos, plus Derbyshire thrown in, although The Mail is reporting that his agent has dismissed this as a 'non-starter'.
This is down to the fact that his wages would be twice what we are offering players, as a maximum, this season - so, from the looks of it he is on £20,000 per week. This, wages of that amount being dished out, aint never gonna happen with Pompey, or should not anyway, for a long, long time again, if ever again!
Ah well, it was a nice thought.
As things stand Boateng 'looks' as though he will be starting the season with us, maybe we should open a book on the first time he will go 'AWOL'...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
