Pompey to get Shot?

'Links' to Ryan Shotton are hardly anything new are they.

We have been 'interested' in the Stoke man for ages...

'Rumours' continue to circulate that we want the defender, with these now 'claiming' that we are actually finally going to get our man?

Apparently he has, or will, reject a move to Burnley in favour of Pompey.

Should this prove to be the case many would think this would be a loan move, but it is 'said' that it would be a permanent move with 1.3m paid for him?

Hmmm, time will tell on this one as I am not so sure, well not so sure we would pay that for him.

At least he is not a 'Stoke reject' as I saw he was involved in the premier league game against Chelski back along.

'Word on the street' is that 'Pompey are refusing to comment' on this...

    I'm not going to be able to remember all our players names if they keep coming in. 20 players? Crazyness!

    Shottons been linked for ages but i'd be surprised if stoke would let him go, but it'd be some coupe, he's an excellent defender and only 22 so finally some youth!

    Is he left footed, as I think SC wants to bring in a left back?

    If Shotton really is in and we pay for him in then whats the betting its THB to go elsewhere for a fee and reduce the wage bill?

    Ahhh well we have to strenghten and he has to be better than Carl Dickinson from last season. I suppose we have no chance of getting Lassana Diarra on loan? Oh if only....

    are you not sure that this has come from that dodgy "transfer rumours" site where anybody can put anything on it

    I'm pretty sure Rug wouldn't post an article based on something from that dodgy rumours site. If that was the case we'd have dozens of superstars linked every day.

    i must stress that as always i am not saying 'this will happen' just that it 'might...
    i was told of this 'rumour' chased it up with the 'wots people' who got back to me with the 'PFC refusing to comment' thoughts - whilst it 'seems' that this is our way now, and it is a good way, a point blank no comment has, more often than not, in recent times meant that there is more likely to be an element of truth to it?
    we will see what happens tho...

    Have asked up here in Stoke land and all i can find out so far is that they rate Shotton highly but might loan him if they had cover I'm told they want to strengthen the squad so may depend on Stoke doing business elsewhere before we get any joy out of this one
