Who next?

Who next?

Finally it appears that a decent amount of talented youngsters are coming through at Pompey, with a number now getting the chance to be involved in our 1st team and what is more they are doing the business!

Some of these players are hopefully going to be our long-term future, sadly it does seem like we will lose a few this summer though?

Jed Wallace (ok technically not one we brought through as such), Dan Butler and this weekend Adam Webster have been 'linked' with moves to clubs higher up the leagues...

We will probably do well to keep all of them this summer but hopefully PFC can at least be in a position where a real financial inability is not going to entirely mean that we will be shafted completely by these clubs with more financial muscle and lose them for peanuts!

If we are going to lose some, or all, of them lets hope we sell them for a price more representing their ability and potential eh.

This (players coming through and ultimately being sold) is what we need a large chunk of our future built upon really. It is never nice being a 'selling club' but the financial stability we could put ourselves in if we can continue to bring players through and then have the proceeds from their departures coming back into the club would be great.

In an ideal world we would keep Wallace, Butler and Webster this summer and they continue their development at Fratton but it is unlikely but we still have others coming through, such as Jack Maloney most recently that should be with us and excite us next season.

You would also like to think that those in charge these days will have the foresight to make deals that see players leave us with sell-on clauses put in place to benefit us more, potentially, down the lines as well!

Just imagine what a cash windfall we could see this summer if the likes of Asmir Begovic and Kevin-Prince Boateng make big money moves and we had included 10%, even 5% sell-on clauses...

If the 'vultures' think our youngsters have potential then, as you say Rug, sell-on clauses are essential.
