No disrespect, or offence, meant but if Hayden Mullins were to leave Pompey in the next day or so, if not today, then this would be a very welcome bonus.
Reading were on the face of it unwilling to make his loan from last season permanent, so it looked like we would be stuck with him - if that is the right choice of words! - for the remaining 12-months of his contract?
Alas, maybe not...
Birmingham could prove our saviours as they are 'believed' to be in talks with him today about signing him on a free transfer with a medical having taken place.
A deal has been agreed, according to The News, with Mullins to 'cancel the final year of his contract' so he can join Brum on this free.
Lets just hope that terms can be agreed so this deal can go through, a transfer fee would have been welcome in an ideal world, but getting his wages - I would guess that stand at anything from £20,000 (minimum) to £30,000 - off the weekly and monthly wage bill is arguably worth even more!
Again, assuming this move goes ahead and is done under the terms reported, then perhaps others will take note and follow in Hayden's example and stop messing around with 'pay-offs' and mutually agree a compromise that benefits everyone eh!
Although I would not hold my breath, but at least this is a start...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
