If Pompey were lucky enough to have any interest shown in Dave Kitson I reckon whoever was showing this interest would not have long to wait for an answer...
It would be hell yes!
Assuming Kitson was let go without a fee, something that would be more than acceptable, the major sticking point would be his wages - who in their right mind would ever pay him something in the region of a 'reported' £19,000 p/w?
Oh wait, Pompey would...
Given this level of wage then as soon as a club at league one level is 'linked' with him then I think we can right away rule this out.
With that in mind I think that we can quite safely say that the 'rumours' of an interest from Sheffield United are exactly that - he was spotted at a recent play-off game of theirs and this has seen two and two put together with conclusions jumped to...
As if it was needed Trevor Birch, talking to The Sheffield Star, has refuted reports linking him with The Blades: 'there has not been an approach from United for Dave.
'Dave is under contract here but he is available.'
Even if a league one club would pay his wages it almost certainly would not be Sheffield United as just a few days ago 'cost cutting measures' with a more 'workable budget' needed this season was something that I saw the club talking about. Couple that with 11 players, including some, I would guess, high earners released they will not replace them with another high earner, especially one that is hardly a world-beater!
Like I say in the title Dave Kitson to Sheffield United, arguably anyone this summer, is 'never EVER gonna happen'...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
