Pompey- 'We will try to sell him.'


John Viafara has returned to Portsmouth after Real Sociedad decided against signing the player on a permanent basis.

'Colombian player John Viafara will not continue at Real Sociedad, with the club having turned down the offer to buy his sporting rights,' said the club on their official website.

Peter Storrie confirmed "we will try to sell him" after Harry made it clear that

Viafara is not part of his plans for next year.

Benfica, do you want him?

If you have to ask if he is good green giant, how can you make the comment that he was a 'very poor signing'?

Very simply because you can cut and past the same line over and over again for every player linked to a story on every Vital site and then add "very poor signing." Go back through the archives to when this guy signed for Pompey, check the relevent story and there will be a "He'll be a good signing 4U."

Well it turns out he was a very poor signing and he did have a big reputation before he joined you. Good players with big reputations can turn out to be poor signings you know. I would give you actaul examples from Plymouth but we have never had a good player or one with even a small reputation and almost all our signings are free.

FEn, thank you for noticing and for the birthday wishes but the number refers to IQ not age.

Top comments coming out of FP, Harry rates Theo and Benjani reckons he could have been his strike partner if Henry had left. Love the four years bit and if I have still got it in me, what 1 goal every ten games!

Depends on what type and the length of deal he is on, maybe only worth a few quid.

Here you go a trip down memory lane. Portsmouth has completed the signing of Colombia midfielder John Viafara, subject to him obtaining a work permit. The 26-year-old once Caldas star has signed a three-year deal with Pompey, ending the club's search for a long-term replacement for Amdy Faye following the Senegalese midfielder's move to Newcastle United in January. Viafara's signing follows the arrival of Newcastle pair Laurent Robert and Andy O'Brien and chief executive Peter Storrie claimed it was an exciting time to be a Portsmouth fan. "We have signed another top class player and he is a box-to-box player and very competitive," he told the club's official website. "With the other two previous signing’s we feel we are really building a team to compete in the Premier League, and the exciting thing about John is how thrilled he is at the prospect of playing Premier League football with a club like Portsmouth. "He is really hungry and wanting to play and that is the kind of player we want at Fratton Park." Viafara, who starred for Colombia in their recent 3-2 friendly defeat against England, added: "When I look at where I have come from and where I am now, I believe that I am a winner, I am a winner in football. "This is my great dream and I see it being carried out. "I always thought that the best thing that could happen to me was to play in Europe and if it was in England, even better

He wasn't a bad player, he always gave 100% but he's not cut out for the level we are hoping to be playing at. He would suit WestBrom or top level championship side. He's not up to prem level yet. He may be one day.
