Latest Pompey Transfer News

Martin O`Neil has apparently told Doug Ellis to get Petrov (thought to be up to 6 million). Martin O`Neil will make Petrov his first signing for Villa, according to reports.

This could see Pompey snatch a double deal for Lee Hendrie and Gareth Barry. Although Harry is thought to be looking at a possible deal to bring Owen Hagreaves to Pompey.

Harry is also awaiting Sol Campbell`s decision, which he expects Friday. If Sol sees his future else where then Harry will look to bring in other targets, such as Barry and Distin.

Hope the Petrov thing is wrong, i watched him play in an old firm derdy and he was superb. Radio says we are linked with a Peruvian playing in Argentina called Juan Vargas. Talk sport says he is a full back, having never heard of him i checked & both ESPN & his club web site say he is a midfielder. Anybody know of him?

Owen Hargreaves would be superb, must admit I was one that gave him stick before the WC but he showed his class. At the end of the day you don't play for a club like Bayern Munich for so long if you are a poor player do you. I'd be more surprised to see him sign than any of our other previous, or future targets. He only wants a top four club doesn't he, and we aren't that, well not yet ;)

Juan Vargas is apparently a left sided defender. But maybe he's similar to Matty Taylor in the fact he could play in midfield also? I know little about the guy other than 3 different clubs own his registration or something similarly crazy, which would see a fee split between the 3! The reported 1.6m wouldn't go far would it.

Hargreaves proved us all wrong at the World Cup, and was clearly one of Englands better players at the end of the day. Might prove a tad difficult to lure him to Pompey, but if none of the 'big clubs' are in for him then it could be a possibility.

If petrov went to Villa it would be a right kick in the nuts and would prove the only reason he didn't come to Pompey was because of scummer Gordan.

Les, stop making stuff up. Harry he after an attacking midfielder, not Hrgreaves. STOP MAKING STUFF UP.

yea i know what you mean Linvoy i dont thinki we do it to other sites unless your ex manager goes down the road, then comes back to and gets stuffed, but regards Petrov it's got less to do with that a short ginger walking shoulder chip than Milan and their chairman.

The not short of confidence I like in Vargas russellm, but not sure on the full of opinions, some of these can be a handful can't they and can cause unrest in the dressing room.

I thought being unable to understand Harry's English was a problem in the past, Hope Vargas can express his opinions in English for the good of all. Vargas and Viafara were both great signings from south America acording to the press at the time so hope this works out better.

How long has martin O'neil been the Villa manager then? Have i missed something?

Fen, Martin O'neil has always been a mercenary bast**d at the best of times and he admits it, so i guess he's been scouted out about what money would be invested in Villa prior to taking the position. pompeyrug you are right about opinionated, apparently Vargas was supposed to come over for a medical but refused because he is a PERUVIAN NO LESS !!!! INTERNATIONAL !!!! and as such need not bother with mere trivial matters like that. But if he plays as good as he talks who cares.... If

Vargas, he sounds like something from outer space. Well if he is out of this world that could be good for us. As for the Petrov affair I blame the red headed ex Scummer, he is loathe to trade with Pompey....full stop.

O'Neil would have managed Petrov at Celtic. Sadly that is probably enough.
