Harry Redknapp has given the clearest indication yet that David Nugent may well be ending his brief spell on the south coast.
It might not mean he will, but with what he tonight told sky sports news after out league cup win, it seems like Nugent could well go after all, 'you need to raise money sometimes, you have to sell people that you're not so keen to sell because you want to get somebody else in.
'It's no secret Derby would like to buy him. His old manager fancies him at Derby, we'll have to wait and see.
'Derby have been in and they would like to sign him, they would like him very much. Billy knows him and if David wants to go... if people want to move then you let them go.
'It's up to David really, I'll have a chat with him and see what his plans are'.
I am absolutely shocked by this news, I cannot believe that after less than two months Pompey would consider selling him, what was the point in signing him in the first place if he is going to be let go already - if indeed he will?
And it does not sound as though Nugent could be the only sacrificial lamb as he also went on to say 'I might have to sacrifice one or two players who people think are good players because I want to improve the team.
'It's not a case of if it's David or someone else. If I have to raise some money to buy a top player, it's who you get an offer for.
'If someone makes an offer you think 'OK, I'll have to do that, because I want to get this player in,' and that's how the business works'.
Maybe this is a knee jerk reaction by me, or it could be a case of putting two and two together but my thinking is we can expect to see Matty Taylor head through the Fratton exit doors to Spurs for sure as well then by the end of this week.
I do not really know what to say, some players have to move on eventually, but some, even if personal difference make things difficult must be kept, Taylor in my honest opinion is one of those that has to be kept.
We will all just have to wait and see now, how quickly jubilation - after our league cup win - turns to sorrow - after this news.
