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.
