'If It's Football, It's Vital'

'Rumour mill' - John Utaka to Konyaspor?

I said earlier today in an article that I 'suspected' the likes of John Utaka would be 'linked' with a move away from Pompey this month, although I also felt that it was 'unlikely' that he would be offloaded...

Well, maybe it could as it appears, that these 'rumours' have started early this month with a move to Turkey 'possibly' in the offing? has come onto the forum today to mention such a possibility - with a username like that I can only imagine that they are a fan of Konyaspor or Turkish football in general?

For more information, and to see what is being said in the forum, click this link - John Utaka to Konyaspor.

    Ok lads, a quick whip round for the bus fare to the airport please. Never has a player with so much early promise been such a let down. Thanks for the few goals & the crosss for the cup final winning goal but he will not be missed. Bye bye.
    ya say that but i don't think anyone can deny he'd be sorely missed if he did leave now, he's been a much better player under SC but he's on big wages and thats that, just hope we can get at least a half decent sum for him
    Another 500k off of the CVA!
    is that the fee we got for him we save about 700k in wages
    He has been man of the match in 3 of the last 9 games. A small fee - say 250k and assuming Pompey don't subsidise his salary, then the club will save circa 900k off the CVA. All goes to make the club sellable to this mythical millionaired deep pocketed Pompey lover who is, some think, out there. Who would replace him; Swindon Charlie? Or, seemingly, a Brown replacement?
    Good start to the January rumour mill though as Cot has said he thinks Hughes and Brown are to leave. DL can't be blackmailed by these two; it's too financially important.
    My Turkish is not too good but looked at this sometime ago and sounds like very good news!!
    Go on SC, get in there with 500k for the lad Hammill at Barnsley. Think he's quite a good player. RussellM can't see it being Charlie Austin at Swindon as a 1.2M bid is in the offing and we certainly don't have that kind of money unless Lawrence does go for 4M.
    bluedr looks like tomoz is the day that all us pompey fans have been waiting for !!
    hammill as if he would join us !! hes got offers from the premier leauge |! and 500k hes one of the best players in this leauge.. unless hes in the same situation as utaka nugent etc contracts up end of the season
    pompeyhussler just seen this he has clause in contract ! has peter storie got a new job at barnsley?
