Official - Baros deal is close

Official - Baros deal is close

Harry Redknapp has confirmed to the Pompey Site that a loan deal for Milan Baros is close - and he could feature this weekend: 'were hoping to do something with Baros - bring him in on loan. Peter Storrie has gone to meet up with his agent and try to do a deal.

'He`d be a good loan signing and it would be a terrific opportunity to have a look at him.

'It would be a loan deal until the end of the season and then we'll see how it goes from there.

'It would be nice to have him available for Saturday if the international clearance can be sorted out in time.

'He's a good player who's played at Liverpool and Aston Villa and he's been the golden boot winner at a European Championships.

'He's got pace and he makes good runs.

I know it may be seen as a bit 'presumptuous' but I would say that the deal must be almost 100% certain as we would not be making such announcements on the Pompey Site if it was not...

I would not be surprised if I came home tonight after work to find the deal had been confirmed, if it is not the case before I go?

As far as the deal goes, a loan initially seems a fantastic way to go as it almost leaves us with nothing to lose.

Please Pompey. I can't bare another Baros article!

you'll have at least 1 more when he signs ;-) i know what you are saying mate but in all fairness this is the first 'official' sign that we have had that a deal is remotely close, and it must be almost nailed on for 'arry to be saying what he is... i have this feeling it could be concluded today but as i have to go to work i couldnt wait and wait so this will also spill over into a 'baros has signed' article if he does when im at work...

Oh the tension...

Hey, what about this bit then? "If I can get Baros I might still look for another loan or buy somebody else if another club comes in and offers me silly money for one of my team." Who's he talking about? Davis? Hughes? Pedro? The Nuge?

whizz whats wrong with Baros articles? If he signs and scores 10 goals before end of season you will want more!!
24/01/2008 16:01:00
et_tu... I hope he's not talking about nuge, the others you named are a lot more expendable, and someone does need to go

That's a strange comment for Arry to make - almost offering anybody up to the highest bidder. I've seen rumours about Everton being interested in Davis. C'mon Arry we've put up with losing Matty this transfer window, there's only so much I for one can take!

im not especially excited on this one...not in the same league as i was when we got nugent, utaka, diara, muntari etc. i dont know why though

I like Baros but, to be fair, I hope he's improved as a player since Villa as I thought he was better at Liverpool. At least he's a 'proper' striker, ie, one who has already done the business (to a certain extent) Within 2 matches, I hope to be singing "there's only one Milan".
24/01/2008 17:11:00
Looks nailed on now, he is totally different to what we have already

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!

Will pair stay at Fratton?

It's been made (more than once) clear by Catlin Pompey want Davies & Hollands to stay. Both (also more than once) have said they want to this - deals have to be right for all concerned.
