He said he would be back and The Herminator is indeed back...
A new 1-year contract has been agreed and will be signed when he is back from international duty with Iceland.
This seems to explain why Matty Ritchie was loaned out, as his moving on opened a place for The Herminator to return, which is something - as he told The News - that Steve Cotterill is more than pleased with: 'the contract has been agreed and ran from Wednesday. It can be signed when Hermann comes back.
'We are just hoping he is going to come back and be the player he was before he was injured.
'Should he do that - which we have no doubts - he will be a really good addition to our squad.'
The 36-year-old is playing in a behind closed doors game today and then 'might' play against Portugal in a Euro 2012 qualifier, although Cotterill thinks that this is too soon: 'he was going to play in a behind-closed-doors game over in Iceland today against an under-23 team.
'We'll see how he gets on, have a chat with the Icelandic national coach afterwards and then have a conversation as to whether he will play in our game at Farnborough on Monday.
'I think Hermann being involved in their game against Portugal on Tuesday is a little bit early but he is a determined so-and-so.
'In my opinion, though, I don't think he is ready for that yet. However, the chances are they would want him around for motivational purposes.
'We will wait and see. As long as he stays fit and clear of any injuries we will be delighted.'
Welcome back Hermann, there can be no doubt that you will be an inspirational figure off the field we just hope that you can return as inspirational, motivational and important on it as you have been in the past...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
