Now Pompey play the waiting game
Harry Redknapp has told sky sports news that a deal to bring David Nugent to Pompey 'is possible'.
Talks are said to have taken place and Redknapp said 'he's a good player, a young player and is an England Under 21 international.
'Whenever I've seen him I've been really impressed with him. He works hard, he scores goals and he's a good lad as well.
'I think he's got a couple of clubs interested, so we'll wait and see what he decides to do.
'I've had a meet with the lad. I was really impressed with him as a boy, he's a great fella.
'Whatever he does I wish him all the best, but I'd like to have him here if possible'.
All we can now do is hope Redknapp has worked his magic and wait and see what happens.
I think it is pretty clear that most of us would like Nugent but he does seem to leave people hanging - Sunderland got fed up with waiting for an answer and reports are suggesting even people at Preston are finding it hard to get through to him?
So hopefully he will not leave us waiting too long - if he does then it is quite clear what his answer is before we even get it.
On the topic of strikers and Pompey, after seeing what storgematt had to say about Svetoslav Todorov I had a little look around and it is being reported that he has signed for Charlton?
Nothing has been officially confirmed but quotes attributed to Todorov suggest it has happened and happened quickly.
Good luck to Todorov - hopefully he can give Ben Thatcher an 'accidental' knock in training though.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
