The media is full of stories that Sol Campbell could leave Pompey - and he will, but not yet.
There have been links with Villarreal after he is claimed to have said in the Daily Express 'I don't think Portsmouth will be my last club'.
As much as I would like Campbell to finish his career with Pompey my thinking has for a long time been that I believe he will see out his contract before moving on next summer for one last shot with a European team, then head off to America - if not heading straight to the States.
He has also spoken about further improvement and money needed to be spent for the club to 'move in the right direction', but I would think the changes we have made and £20m plus spent this summer so far is not a bad start really is it.
Yep, in some cases he is right but the steps forward we have made in the past 12 months or so have been amazing, with further development plans very much in place, but not all of these things can happen over night.
Missing out on Europe last season was a major blow for Campbell, who has not really taken this well, but he is not really saying things that make him sound like a man that is looking to move away just yet, nor is he showing the attitude of one either as he was very put out when he was taken off on Tuesday after a man of the match showing.
He is more involved with what is going on off the field too, so I cannot see a reason for him to go just yet.
Players of his quality will attract the attentions of others, but he still has a year on his contract and I would expect him to see this out - then I still think he will leave when it ends but not before.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
