Monday was a very quiet day for Pompey and the Tabloids - with news mostly similar to that from the weekend.
Something that may have been lurking from the weekend - that I only picked up on on Monday - was talk of an 'almost certain' Sean Davis exit from Pompey this summer, with Boro - despite claims they are not after him, Wigan and his old club Fulham interested. My own feeling on this is I will not be at all surprised to see Davis leave.
Marlon Harewood - one of many 'reported' Pompey targets - was subject to a bid from Birmingham. An initial £2million plus 'add-ons' said to have been offered for the striker - West Ham rejected this. Funny how Wigan and Fulham are said to be interested in the player as well - it seems the media link not just Pompey, but Fulham and Wigan with most players too!
The opening exchanges of the 2007/08 season look very tough for Pompey and Harry Redknapp explained this to The News - but he is still looking for a top 10 finish again. This was covered in full on Vital Pompey in this article Tough start but Pompey aim high.
Something else Redknapp told The News were his thoughts that he expects Kanu to leave the club this summer - as do most of us - if due to nothing else but his 'stubbornness' to agree to Pompey's terms. This too was covered in full on Vital Pompey in this article Kanu nearer to Pompey farewell.
The thing that really caught my eye though were the early murmurings that former Pompey boss Alain Perrin could throw a spanner in the works in our attempts to sign French international Alou Diarra.
Thoughts that the new Lyon boss could attempt to 'scupper a deal' for the World Cup runner up had crossed the minds of many Pompey fans - but a deal was said to be close over the weekend. Reports from France though are suggesting that Perrin may have convinced Diarra to hold out for a 'bigger club'.
Should such a thing happen then this could add further backing to the 'reports' that maybe Claude Makelele could be more of a target than we thought - a story on the links to the World Cup and European Championship winner with France were covered, again by Vital Pompey, in this article Blues can't pull this off, can they?
