Pompey Make Move On 5 Targets

Pompey Make Move On 5 Targets


Portsmouth yesterday made their biggest move of the transfer window. There where four fresh offers and one outstanding one.

The outstanding one is, of course, Petrov. Pompey have apparently given Celtic until Saturday to decide whether our final offer will be accepted or not.

The first offer of Thursday was for Benfica`s Manuel Fernandes and according to reports in Portugal this morning, that offer has been accepted. The player has been dubbed the new "Makelele." He plays in the centre of midfield and has fallen out with Benfica`s staff over an injury he sustained.

As vital Pompey broke you the news yesterday, we have made an offer for Blackburn`s Ryan Nelson. The Mirror has reported this morning that an offer of four million has been tabled.

Next up saw a double West Brom swoop! An offer was made for Zolten Gera was made and although I am unaware of the response, the player did hand in a transfer request today which gives me the impression it was rejected. An enquiry was also made after their highly rated centre back Curtis Davies, this was quickly rejected;

'There's been a lot of interest but Curtis is not for sale,' Robson told Sky Sports News.

'He's got a three-year contract with us and we want to make a good go at getting back out of this division and Curtis is a major part of that.'

'I'm not going into individual interest,' added Robson. 'There's been approaches for quite a few and they've all been turned down - we want to keep all the squad together.'

Harry also spoke to Sol Campbell for the first time about a possible move to Portsmouth.

A busy day at Fratton Park, I would say there will be a couple of signings out of what was a trawling mission, love to know what the bid for Curtis Davies was.

West Brom are doing well to fight off interest at the moment, and I haven't seen many murmurings of their players being desperate to leave. If they can keep their squad together they should do well (at least until the January window anyway....)

A friend of mine was at the Blackburn Rovers on Thursday morning, Lucas Neill and Brett Emerton (obviously given the time off after the World Cup) aside he said Ryan Nelson was the most notable high profile player missing... Upon returning home he said he heard of Pompey's interest and e-mailed me. With him not being at the club and us interested looks as though maybe something is happening there...

You sure those robson quotes arent from a) Arsenal's recent interest, or b) Our supposed interest in early june? Or are you just randomly making up speculation like normal?

Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
