Deadline Day as it happens.

Deadline Day as it happens.

With Pompey sunning themselves in Southern Spain ahead of their friendly with Real Betis in Seville it is thought that it will be a quiet day on the transfer front before the window slams shut at 11pm.

Championship clubs can still loan players after 8 September and that is what I expect Boss Steve Cotterill to do to plug any gaps he sees in his squad. Midfield general/creator we all shout but there are at the moment no rumours about of any impending arrival.

We have already seen the following arrive during the summer -

David Norris - Ipswich Town
Luke Varney - Derby County
Stephen Henderson - Bristol City
Greg Halford - Wolverhampton Wanderers
Erik Huseklepp - Bari
Marko Futacs - Werder Bremen
Jason Pearce - AFC Bournemouth
Christian Dailly - Unattached
Benjani Mwaruwari - Unattached


plus the news that youngster Jed Wallace has joined from Lewes but this as yet has not been confirmed by the club.

Know of any rumours then let us know. At present though the silence is deafening with only news of a couple of former players; that is Lomana Lua Lua will not be joining Sheffield Wednesday and Papa Bouba Diop has joined West Ham.

We will keep you updated if there are any developments.

STOP PRESS

Pompey have just formally announced the signing of Lewes teenager Jed Wallace. Andy Awford told the Official site "He's a central midfielder with a good attitude. He`s a level-headed lad who wants to learn. This is the first step on the ladder - there is a lot of hard work in front of him. But hopefully he will blossom and come through the ranks."

One for the future then and we beat Newcastle to him too!

I'd comfortably predict that Cotterill is too busy having a siesta than looking to sign anyone else permanently.

Devil's advocate

Having heard the views of chris1954 and Pompeysurrey that of Ronald Wilson encompasses both, reacting to them, but also offers an opinion of their own.

What a mess

Ouch, 'what a mess' is the assessment of Pompeysurrey when commenting on the current situation at Fratton Park.
