Redknapp confirms Nugent deal

Redknapp confirms Nugent deal

Confirming David Nugent's arrival - pending a successful medical today - Harry Redknapp has said to sky sports news that his signing 'shows how far we've come'.

As well as saying 'I'm delighted to have him. He works hard and that's something Portsmouth fans like.

'We have brought some real good players in and I think with a couple of strikers, people like Nugent coming in, it will be a good season for us.

'To get him in that will be great, but I'm still looking for another one and then we will have a decent squad'.

It has been a long drawn out saga, but one that will - baring any unforeseen problems with a medical, which should not happen - be concluded today with a happy ending. And will see Pompey sign an exciting young prospect - and better still an English prospect.

Seeing his solo effort on sky sports news on Tuesday, where he waltzed through a defence from the halfway line before scoring, reminded me what a great young talent we are picking up, if I needed reminding.

I look forward to seeing this other too - whoever he might be.

yep, he could take 10 off ralph - which makes most sense agree, but 9 is available anyway isn't it? or he could take cole's 8... when he comes through that medical today i'll be a very happy man! utaka and another striker, be that defoe or yak and we will be a right handful this season...

Based on previous experiences with Pompey I still won't believe it until I see it. But this would be an excellent signing, he's not been a massively prolific scorer but with the kind of service he could expect from us, a bit more experience and some decent coaching I think he'll be an excellent acquisition. Oh yeah and playing alongside another top notch striker will help...Defoe/Yak with Benjani tossed into the equation. Nice...

Now at least we can tackle the first 6 fixtures (top 4 included) with some degree of positive strike force. A first up win at Derby is a must with 3rd game Home against rubbery Bolton. This could allow a Man Utd loss (surely not after 3 out of 4) with 3 more big guns in a row. O.K. so if we are 12th after 6 games I will be very happy because I would believe we can only go up at that point. Does anybody agree or do you only wear rose coloured glasses ?
