What happened on Monday with Pompey and the media? Lets take a look.
There we were expecting to see the plug pulled on the David Nugent deal when the official Preston site sprung the news on us that he would not be returning to training as expected - instead he was returning for further talks with Pompey. This was covered in full by Vital Pompey in this article Nugent back for more talks?
Andy Griffin has little or no future at Pompey, but with a permanent move to Stoke still to happen he has admitted that he might have to stay here - and if he does he will accept it. What he told The News could be an example to many a footballer and his attitude is top class - it is just a shame his football cannot match this.
Preston gaffer Paul Simpson told sky sports news that he understands why it is taking Nugent so long to decide on his future and whether this lies with Pompey or not? He also claims that it was he that delayed the Sunderland move and not Nugent - but also said he expects a decision very soon, as all parties need to know what is going on.
The thing that really caught my eye was the news coming out of Spain that Sevilla have put a ridiculous price of £10m on the head of Fredi Kanoute, with club president Jose Maria Del Nido telling the Spanish press 'if any club is interested in Kanoute the minimum price is €15million (£10million)'.
That is some way short of our reportedly previously rejected offer of £4.7m.
Even by today's standards that is a bit extreme and no one is going to pay that for a 29-year old, particularly as he has not exactly been prolific over the years, before the 2006/07 season has he.
Kanoute himself seems to be looking to increase his weekly pay packet but has hinted that a return to England is his favoured move - but with the amount Sevilla are looking for my thinking is he will be lucky to get a move anywhere, let alone England.
This is definitely the end of the line for Kanoute's hopes of a move to Pompey, or our hopes of seeing him move here now you would think?
PLAY UP POMPEY!
