Pamarot and LuaLua move talk?
There were slight murmurings over the latter part of the weekend that Noe Pamarot might leave Pompey to return to France in a loan deal - with these murmurings getting a little louder in the French media now.
Monaco is the side 'reportedly' interested in taking the Frenchman, who only has a year left on his current contract, back to his homeland.
I was not that convinced by Pamarot when he was with Pompey the first time round, nor was I when he first returned but he has grown on me and has looked particularly impressive to me during pre season so far.
My thinking would be that unless he wants to go Harry Redknapp would have little interest in letting him leave - nor should he have any interest in letting him go.
There is also more talk about Lomana LuaLua being at the centre of a 'tug of war' between Sevilla and Espanyol.
I have been up and down on where I stood with LuaLua and what I wanted to happen to his this summer, but again, unless he wants to go I would like him to stay here and I think that he will.
He has looked hungry the last couple of pre season games, which I am taking as a good sign for the season ahead. Although he could be used as a bargaining tool to bring Fredi Kanoute to Pompey from Sevilla, as has been mentioned previously.
