Another saints star being monitored

Pompey could raid the saints for the second time in under a year after Tony Adams confirmed that he has watched their winger Nathan Dyer.

Andrew Surman was the man that had been reported as interesting Pompey, but Adams has been open in his admission that Dyer - likened to Shawn Wright-Phillips - is being closely monitored.

He is out of contract in the summer, but as he is only 19 a compensation amount would be required as he is too young to qualify as a free agent - unless this has changed? - under the Bosman ruling, but if Harry Redknapp - who gave him his debut during his sabbatical with the saints - does make a move it could come in January anyway, with a right sided option needed with the loss of John Utaka when he goes off to the African Nations.

To be honest I have been very impressed with the fella when I have seen clips of him. The one and time I have actually sat through the whole of a saints match since they played us and we won 4-1 was their league cup defeat this season, a match in which he looked particularly impressive with some fantastic skills resulting in a saints goal.

He looks to have the quality to make it - so I for one would not be against his signing, what about you fellas?

You've gotta hand it to the Saints - they do have an unrivaled academy. The best thing about Redknapp previously coaching at Saints (apart from relegating them) is that he still has an influence there, he could coax more youngsters like Cranie to join Pompey.

If he has any amition to play in the top flight he will be on his way i January, he would give us another option out wide. Or he could stay at the scum and waste the next few years of his career, not much to consider really is there?

well, given the choice of playing for a feeder club in the championship, that isn't doing too well anyway, or playing for a club that is making its way up the premiership, playing great football along the way, i know what i would choose...

I have cautioned about gloating before...but it is so nice to be the superior south coast club after so long. Spurs may also be interested as they have admitted to watching the scum recently. This appears to be Surman though that they are interested in

As southerners we should consider the plight of our neighbours very carefully and as such we should only sign him if they really really really really want to keep him.
