Reports recently have linked Everton with a move for Sol Campbell - as well as yet more renewed interest from Newcastle.
But in a press conference in Hong Kong Harry Redknapp has again said that Campbell is not available 'Sol is under contract here and we want to keep him. We sign players on a contract and they are tied to the club for the period of that contract. It's as simple as that.
'Sol is a big part of my plans. I want him to be here and he will be here.
'We are looking strong in that area and we want to keep it that way. Sol is happy here and enjoying his football. He's staying here'.
There will always be 'speculation' linking out players with other clubs, but as we continue to move forward this will stop.
Without wanting to get too carried away, potentially our progression could lead to only a very small selection of clubs being ahead of us in the league, these clubs being the ones labelled 'the big four', but even this band are not untouchable in time.
But in order to make sure we do keep our players we do have to make this potential a reality.
Back to the Campbell matter, he is said to also be heavily involved with matters behind the scenes here, so why would he want to leave in any case? What could Everton or Newcastle offer him that we cannot - nothing!
I hope he stays beyond his contract but my thinking is that Campbell will see it out then probably leave - trying his hand with a European team for a year or two before, if not going there anyway, finishing in America and moving into acting.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
