Transfers, Traore out - Aubey in?

Transfers, Traore out - Aubey in?

'Reports' in France are saying that one player looks like he will be leaving Fratton Park to return to France, whilst another will be leaving France to play here...

Djimi Traore seems 'surplus to requirements' now and is believed to be a player that we would let go - but reports are not saying he will be sold, merely loaned with Rennes interested in a loan deal.

My thinking is that this could happen, but I am sure that we would prefer it to be a permanent deal as loaning him out will not will benefit us that much will it?

The player being 'linked' with Pompey is Lens defender Lucien Aubey. The 'unsettled' defender is apparently being watched and we are interested in making a move for him, with Birmingham also 'said' to be keen.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Lucien Aubey is class.. a proper left back with speed & great defensive abilities. Would be a great signing & is only 23. See also Sky are mentioning spiderman Jonah Gutierrez linked again, along with Daniel Guiza

So is this the guy to be unveiled along with Diarra at the press conference tomorrow ?.. Not sure I know anything about this player other than what I've just looked up on Wiki .... 'He's currently with Toulouse FC used mainly as a central defender or left back' .... So he's the cover for Sol and Dist or a replacement for Pamarot & Hermann .. and now Taylor can go ? ..... Still no sign of a striker or Right winger though... Oh and Djimi, yep thanks mate but on ya way

We must've posted at the same time Yellow ... so if Jonah Gutierrez and Daniel Guiza come that's the right winger and forward positions taken care of .... Gutierrez is an exciting player (scores very few though) but Guiza is quality he's scored everywhere he's played and only struggled to get into the Spainish side because of Torrres, Villa & Reyes.. Imagine (not gonna happen) but Imagine anyway if Harry unveiled these three and Diarra tomorrow lunchtime... What would the team look like on Saturday?

Good to see the stock quality improving. As for Traore, he won't be missed by us or Portsmouth City Council.

I hope Traore pays up his council tax bill before he goes!

Nice one tracyc ... but I'm sure a few council officals won't mind if he doesn't as they'll probably justify a trip to France to track him down.. on expenses of course ;)

I can imagine the new chant already, 'diamond geezer (close enough) he's alright'. If all these signings come off, plus of coarse the rumour of Defoe, there won't be any room left in the firts team when the ACN boys come back. Nice to have that kind of strengthg in depth though.
