Diawara Could Still Join
Charlton defender Souleymane Diawara could still be joining Portsmouth in the summer. His agent claims that a deal would only be possible in January with special permission from FIFA.
'The problem is that he has already been transferred this year so he is not allowed to leave during the January transfer window unless FIFA give special dispensation,'
'But Souleymane may move to Portsmouth next summer, it will be very easy for him to be transferred in July.'
Maybe this was whom Peter Storrie was referring to in the programme notes before the Charlton match. It may also explain why Diawara was left on the bench.
