New, and old, faces in the frame?
The News today says that Steve Cotterill 'could' have Rocha John Rocha, Kanu, Liam Lawrence, Dave Kitson and 'even possibly' Kyle Naughton available for the game with Ipswich tomorrow...
I can only assume that as Kitson's deal went through, without a hitch, on deadline day last week he is 100%, fitness permitting, available.
Rocha John Rocha, Kanu and Lawrence ARE all training with Pompey although 'officially' none have been confirmed, although it is 'said' it is just the football league approval that is needed.
As for Naughton, ok he has been 'linked' with a loan move, but again nothing is being announced officially so is he 'really' that likely to be around for tomorrow?
A 2-year contract has apparently been agreed with Rocha John Rocha, quite if it is a 1 or 3-year deal with Kanu is still as clear as mud although a deal has been agreed, apparently! Lawrence, from the looks of it, is coming in on loan before the permanent move is made in January.
The question is WHEN are we going to get the official news on this instead of having to read things in The News?
That said if it is the football league needing to 'approve' these deals exactly how long does it take for them to approve them - which begs the question WHY is it taking so long...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
