Pompey 'chasing' Jerome Thomas

We have been 'linked' with Charlton winger Jerome Thomas before and it is 'claimed' that we are looking to make a deadline move for him today.

Harry Redknapp has admitted to The News that he would like Thomas, but has also said that Charlton are not keen on the idea of loaning him - as he appears to want: 'I have tried to loan Jerome Thomas. He's a young player with talent.

'I don't know if that will happen, I think they would sell rather than loan him.

'We have two forward players at the moment, there is no-one to come off the bench. That is a problem for us'.

Redknapp has also said that no one will be leaving Pompey unless others arrive: 'There is not a lot of time left.

'I doubt if any will go out unless we can get a couple in.

'I won't let anyone go unless that happens.

Benjani is being 'linked' with Man City, while Jermain Defoe is once again being 'linked' with a move here.

Others also 'rumoured' to be courting interest are Lauren - with Real Mallorca keen, so some sort of cash plus player deal could be possible with Jonas Gutierrez and Sean Davis has also been 'linked' with a move to Everton or Boro.

Had a text from a friend who is a charlton fan. Dont know what sites they have locally, but according to him the Thomas deal is all over their local websites???? seems like a done deal to them?? who knows? Well done Mr Rug for picking up on this so quickly, you are obviously going to be a busy boy today keeping up with all the rumours and gossip lol... Still as this goes on till midnight, atleast you will sleep well mate.

Rumours now that Pomepy have accepted 6.5m from City for Benjani!! Bidding 9m for Defoe.

I can't believe there's truth in the Benjani leaving rumour. Arry likes him. Why would we sell our top scorer? esp when we are desperate for strikers. Makes no sense. None.

6.5m for benji still sounds cheap, you coould not even get heskey for that these days, I am not shocked about the bids but I am shocked at the value they are putting on him.

Taxi driver in Bournmouth says he's just given Freddie Kanoute a lift from the airport to Training ground - NOW THAT WOULD BE GOOD, EH?

SkySports News claiming 9.7 millon Benjani -City,9 Million Defoe to us... Also claims that Crouch is in eastleigh.. Kanote story is appearing a few palces. Don't think Beni will go without signing someone else

Dave, my understanding iss the initial out lays are Sky blues to pay 6.9 for Benji, we make aa down payment of 4.5 for Defoe, the rest dependant upon appearances etc etc. personally my initial thoughts are JD cant do the one up front thing, Arry doesnt think 442 suits outr balance so i think it maybe shows we have settled for 9th. which if true i think is aa failure.

Et_Tu_pompeii just out of interest, why would Kanoute fly to bournemouth airport and get a taxi up the A27, when our training ground it at the end of the runway of scumport

Look like the Thomas deal is off .. apparently Chalton are only after a sell rather than a loan deal... .. will we ever get a winger ?.. Is Spiderman still in the offing ?

Don't really know a great deal about this lad so not too fussed that he didn't sign....the story got drowned out in our usual deadline day malarky anyway.
