Defoe Wanted to Join Pompey?!?!

Pompey have claimed (Peter Storrie) that we had a six million bid for Defoe rejected. Peter Storrie told the Sun newspaper;

'We put in a bid of 6m for Defoe and it was rejected,' said Storrie.

'He wanted to come and that shows we are a club moving in the right direction.'


Although this is nice to hear, a six million bid for Defoe was unlikely to be accepted! Lets face it, Emile Hesky went for about that. Pompey where obviously interested in the player but these latest claims are likely to upset Tottenham.

Is this a move by Pompey to upset the player before swooping for him in January?

Don't be silly now. All that money, but who wants to play for Portsmouth!
Salford Red
David James, Sol Campbell, Glen Johnson, Pedro Mendes, Sean Davis, Andy Cole, Dean Kiely etc etc
lmatthews
The average age between them can't be a pretty sight surely? James and Cole are there for a final Premiership Pay day...
Salford Red
mixture, look at the age gap between Jamie Ashdown, Matt Taylor, Garry O'neil, Davis, Benjani, Gken Johnson
lmatthews
Surely you cant claim Ashdown having already mentioned two other goalkeepers. Come on now ;)
Salford Red
why we have two old keepers and one two young ones
lmatthews
If we were really interested in Defoe we would of followed up with a bid that would tempt Spurs into selling Defoe. More Storrie Bullsit it smell. It's a bit like the Petrov saga, Celtic didn't want to sell because there was no time for them to find a replacement, More Storrie Bullsit as Petrov signed for Villa and Celtic signed Graveson from Real Madrid.

From what I gather from the Spurs websites, he was never for sale & 6m was well short of their valuation. It may have been another PS smokescreen. Sadly, as I have said on many occasions, he is the one player I think we should have broken the bank for.
storagematt
I definately think he won't be for sale now. Expect Defoe to be in the starting lineup tomorrow against us. Fickle management...you bet! Unlucky fellahs. Shame nobody could pick him up whilst he was all but "unwanted" he's looked red-hot for England!
Salford Red
We'd never get Defoe for that money we're kidding ourselves if we thought we could. 10m would have been the lowest we should have bid if he as really wanted. How could we have offered 15m (as we are reported to have earlier in the summer and only 6m now...
pompeyrug
Come on lets be serious, unless there is actually not as much money as we thought harry had, there is no doubt he should fork out top cash for top players. You'll probably find that because it would have probably been a deadline day transfer, he should of offered about 13mil probably would have got him for that!
Westov
Would easily have got Defoe for that, would maybe have been given change as well :) with another thanks for shopping at White Hart Lane... We'd be getting loyalty points by then...
pompeyrug
Defoe will be on his way in the transfer window.... Will get him then i feel... When were above spurs pushing for europe and there well not even in the top half... They have be really crap so far this year
Play Up Pompey
I would like to see Defoe at Pompey. Do you think he will come in January or do you think we have missed the chance now. He has played well for England and I think a bit more interest may be going his way from other clubs. All depends how we are doing in January.
POMPEYMEV
DEFOE is not DEFRIEND....but I dink dattledo.
