Harry Redknapp admits to his admiration of Reading's Stephen Hunt - a player we are apparently tracking - but also rules out a move 'I haven't even thought about him. I don't see why he would be leaving Reading.'
Something that worried me slightly were reports that we could move for Henri Camara for £3million, but this has probably been borne out of Redknapp's previous ties with the Senegalese international during his time with him when he suffered his mental health issues and went down the road. God knows another misfiring striker is exactly what we do not need - especially with him the wrong side of 30, or at least approaching this.
Guinea international Fode Mansare, currently with Toulouse is the latest French based player to be linked with the Premiership and Pompey. The 25-year old winger is set for a move to the Premiership, so it is little surprise that he is linked with Pompey, most others are!
The thing that really caught my eye though were the worrying claims - to me anyway, I am not sure how anyone else would view this - by L'Equipe that Benjani is keen on a return to France?
The Zimbabwean international arrived as our then transfer record signing from Auxerre for £4.4million in January 2006. He may have struggled for goals but his work rate and effort make him worth his weight in gold, if we could get a goalscorer alongside him this partnership could be dynamite.
So, hopefully news of possible interest from champions league qualifiers Marseille is nothing more than idle gossip and we will see the fans favourite again here next season.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
