Pompey in for Leadbitter?

Pompey in for Leadbitter?

According to TWTD.co.uk Pompey will soon wrap up a move for Grant Leadbitter?

With another former Pompey transfer target, Keith Andrews, set to complete a loan move to Ipswich this will see us land another Ipswich captain, having signed their previous one Chuck this summer, from them.

TWTD.co.uk says: 'Blackburn Rovers midfielder Keith Andrews will complete his loan move to Town tomorrow in time to make his debut against his former club Hull City on Saturday.

'TWTD understands that the 30-year-old Irishman's recruitment is set to trigger skipper Grant Leadbitter's departure to Portsmouth.
'

And...

'We understand the addition of a further central midfielder will see Grant Leadbitter move on to Portsmouth.

'The 25-year-old was linked with Birmingham City earlier in the summer but that deal fell through after the change of manager at St Andrew's.

'The former England U21 international, who was mentioned in connection with a possible £2 million move to Wigan in January when he was also linked with West Ham and Wolves, is now set to be reunited with his former Blues team-mate David Norris at Fratton Park.
'

Interesting, lets see what happen...

Read the full TWTD.co.uk article - here.

I have also just had this 'word on the street' message come through to me: 'Journo says Tractor Boy source says Pompey bid for Grant Leadbitter is likely to be accepted.'

The plot thickens...

    great signing !!! if true not sure on fee reports are its around 1m this is because he has less than year left on contract and he is one of their top earners..?? maybe on around 20k a week ... but at 25 would be a great signing i remember him at sunderland.

    Hope this one comes off for Pompey; it's a good move and a welcome link!

    Would be a good signing if true. Is he not the captain there too, taking over after Chuck left? Seems strange to appoint him in that role, and sell him.

    That's exactly what I was thinking Alty. However, SC did appoint Marc Wilson captain and than sold him. That was a different case though I suspect!

    its good to have a player whp has a proven partnership with one of our own, and oi would assume chuck would have had a lot to say to SC about him..

    Would still like to see a striker come in as a priority rather than another midfielder!!

    Another leader as Cotterill likes, would like to see this come off today if we can.

    Vital View - League 2, 25th-26th March 2017

    With Doncaster and Plymouth yet to play Portsmouth took advantage to close the gap and extend it on the chasing pack. Newport & Leyton Orient look likely to be relegated.

    With Stevenage drawing and Blackpool the only potential challenger winning we've got a six point cushion on Boro that's effectively seven given our superior goal difference.
