Leaving Pompey is something that has been pretty much 'nailed on' for Dave Nugent for a long time.
For me this has been the case for at least 12-months, but I think his decision was without doubt made up in January and seeing out his lucrative contract at Pompey was going to be all she wrote for the one time England international...
A move to someone like Burnley, Bolton, Wigan or Blackpool, not forgetting Ipswich, 'seemed' the most likely move, but would they offer him the wage he wanted?
According to 'reports' joining Leicester now seems something that is certain to happen.
Leicester, on the face of it, would seem to be the only club that would match his current reported £25,000 p/w wages, or get anywhere near to it but is this, money, his motivating factor?
In all fairness, in many ways, you cannot blame the guy for keeping his options open - as he has - and looking out for himself but I cannot help but think that 'should' this move go through it would 'seem' that the financial aspect of things is the most important thing for him...
The guy has had his moments, and whilst I cannot say that I would not want him to stay - on the right deal, I will not say that I am 'devastated' that he will move on and would think that we could, if we go about it the right way, bring in 2 - maybe 3 - players on his weekly wage that could offer as much as he did all in all.
Like I say, he has had his moments, but all in all he has proven something of an expensive flop if you are blatantly honest - sorry Dave!
When he signs for Leicester, if he does, for his sake I do hope that this does not turn into something of a déjà vu experience for him...
Although to be fair you could argue, and maybe rightly so, that Nugent is in actual fact moving for football and financial reasons, so fair play to him I guess?!
Anyway, as one striker edges closer to a confirmed Fratton exit, another has moved to dismiss talks that he is set for retirement.
It was being 'rumoured' that Kanu was toying with ending his career to focus on charity work.
This has been dismissed by his agent who has said he has no intention of leaving before the end of his contract, which still has a couple of years to run.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
