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.
Midge
He has been linked before, we'll see.

picked up on it from setanta quite a few hours ago, then 'arry was talking to the news about it... i made a schoolboy error today and did not organise cover at work, or book it as a day off so i will be away from 4 until at least 11ish tonight... thankfully paultsmouth will be around - hopefully for most of that time - in the meantime i have my ear to the ground :-)
pompeyrug
as ar as thomas goes - i know 'arry has been after him for a while but im not sure about the fella tbh... clearly if he signs i will back him tho.
pompeyrug
Rumours now that Pomepy have accepted 6.5m from City for Benjani!! Bidding 9m for Defoe.
eastneydave
WHATS THIS I HEAR ABOUT BENJANI LEAVING!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOO
ausoccer
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.
tracyc
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?
Et_tu_Pompeii
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
yellowcheesemonkey
is jerome thomas getting a game at charlton? if not then why would we want him?
jbaker
man city, get your hands off benji! loosing matty, gary is like having the sole ripped out of our team. loosibg benji would just destroy it completly. oh, and i dont think he is good enough for us this jerome thomas guy...i think he is going somewhere else anyway...
pompeycarpet
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.
russellm
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
russellm
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 ?
Chix
aparantly spider man will sign at 11:00...or at least thats what i heard...
pompeycarpet
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.
