Portsmouth have had a second improved bid for Petrov rejected, as Celtic chairmen confirms no one has come close to meeting Celtic`s evaluation of the player.

Vital Pompey understands that Fulham is Petrov`s most likely destination although Quinn wants him to stay.

Quinn (Celtic chairmen) told the Sunday Times: 'I'm a bit old-fashioned. I think if you sign a contract you should stick to it.

'We had a long negotiation, and it wasn't a snap judgement by either party.

'Petrov committed himself to four more years at Celtic.

'I find it bizarre he's now taken the position he must leave.

'He's under contract to Celtic and we would only part with him if we had an offer that meets our valuation of the player.

'There's some way to go between the offers we've received and our valuation.

'We think he should buckle down and get on with it.'

Fulham want to replace Maalbranque. So why don't we get him & tell Celtic to sod off?

Yes, Malbranque would certainly be a good signing - he's only going to rot in the the Fulham reserves and watch them get relegated otherwise.

to storagematt....why do you say tell Celtic to sod off? Petrov is a Celtic player, Celtic don't want to sell him and have not offered him to Portsmouth so how can you tell Celtic to sod off? Portsmouth supposedly offered 8.5 million for a Championship player yet only 3.5 for an international captain, very experienced in Europe and at the prime age of his career. Portsmouth, if they really want a player, have to pay the going rate and it doesn't matter whether you rate the Scottish Premier League or not. They would get him for cheaper than the championship, but at the moment the offer is insulting to both the player and the club, especially when 'Arry himself says that Petrov is the complete midfielder. Trust me, you would be getting a very very good player.

I'm not talking about paying over the odds, but 3.5 is insulting when Portsmouth were willing to pay 8.5 for a Championship player. I would expect that 5 would do it, but only because he's playing in Scotland. Some of the prices in England at the moment are crazy and are only being paid because the clubs have the money, not because the players are really worth it. I guess it's the old adage of being worth what someone is prepared to pay.

This deal isn't going to happen is it, so 'Arry should turn his attentions elsewhere, making sure we don't miss out on other possible targets

BBC is now reporting Milan Mandaric as saying the deal for Petrov will hopefully be wrapped up by the weekend? But they also still call Mandaric Portsmouth Chairman! But thinking about it, I guess technically they are right as he is still our non-executive chariman.

Until the end of august he is still in charge. The signing over has taken place but the take over date isn't until the 30th or 31st of august. I cant remember how many days are in august and I can't be bothered to get up and look at my calendar ha ha ha

Evans - Right back or right midfield?

Drew Talbot and Adam Buxton are fit but Gareth Evans continues to fill in at right back. Should this change? If so where would it leave the battle between Evans and Carl Baker?
