Wilson deal with Stoke 'almost done'

Wilson deal with Stoke 'almost done'

A Fratton exit for Marc Wilson before tomorrow nights transfer deadline is a mere formality - the deal to take him to Stoke is more of less done according to Steve Cotterill.

The fee with Stoke for Wilson is agreed, £2.5m, and his terms again 'more of less' agreed - it is just a case of the 'extras' that Pompey get that need thrashing out...

I think that we all know that Dave Kitson and Liam Lawrence have been mentioned as 'makeweights' in the deal, this could prove a sticking point, not that it will prevent Wilson's exit I would not have thought?

He will leave regardless now it would seem.

The 'logistics' of the deal are proving harder with it likely to be harder to get 'two players across the line'...

It is 'said' that Kitson is keen on the move although Lawrence will need more 'convincing', lets put it this way if he does not want to be here then we do not want him, that said - to be fair - if I were a player would I really want to come here!

    Kitson and 2.5 is already too much for wilson id say. And even if lawrence aint that interested, hes not gonna start for stoke anyways. He'll be a bonus ( A big one ) Probably good enough to replace wilson. Just hope we dont lose any more players. ( Exceptions- Utaka) :P

    Stokeies seem to think it's more like £1.5m + 2 players. The problem is the Pompey defence DOES need Lawrence; but how do you motivate a man who doesn't want to be here. Cotterille can't seem to motivate those that supposedly do want to play at FP

    Done Deal - Free agent Davies arrives

    No sooner had I mused the central defensive options wondering would Cookie bring in another have we announced a deal for former Accrington man Tom Davies!

    No longer a midfield option

    Barton played most of his football for Pompey in central defence. He came to Fratton as a central midfielder but those days are behind him, as far as Cookie is concerned.

    On this day in history...1st July

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 1st July.

    Good luck Ben!

    In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.
