Tuesday was another quiet day for Pompey and the Tabloids on the whole.
The News claimed that Fredi Kanoute had become Harry Redknapp's 'number one target', after Redknapp confessed to watching the weekend Sevilla game. This was covered in full on Vital Pompey in this article Kanoute Pompey's number one target?
Reports had started to filter through that Alou Diarra was not so keen on joining Pompey after all, with sections of the media laying the fault of this at the feet of Alain Perrin, an easy statement for them to make given Perrin's history with Pompey. 'Reports' said Diarra was 'more interested' in a move to Newcastle now.
Another striker crossed of the list - or so we would now think - was David Nugent. Harry Redknapp told The News that 'he likes him' but the money being asked for him was 'a lot of dough'. This too was covered in full on Vital Pompey in this article Nugent price puts Redknapp off.
Reading's Stephen Hunt could be on the move after all with him looking for a new contract just 6 months after signing his last. He 'just wants to earn the same as his team mates', this prompted the Mirror to suggest Pompey and Bolton could make a move. Redknapp said he likes Hunt and £1.5million does not sound a lot, but again a striker is a priority.
My thinking is that Harry Redknapp's views and the way The News wrote the article that saw Redknapp stating that letting Diomansy Kamara leave was 'one of Perrin's worst mistakes', was nothing more than a swipe back at the reports Perrin 'could' be dissuading Diarra from joining Pompey. Another story covered in full on Vital Pompey in this article Kamara missed by Redknapp.
The thing that really caught my eye though were the late murmurings - which would be the early ones for today - from the Independent that Pompey had seen a fresh bid for Yakubu rejected by Boro?
Early reports claim a £10million bid is the latest to be rejected, but a move away from Boro is still likely to happen - but they are looking for something closer to £14millon for the Nigerian.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
