Benjani undergoing City medical?

Benjani undergoing City medical?

It is being reporting that Benjani is undergoing a medical with Man City ahead of a proposed move away from Pompey...

Harry Redknapp has said that players will only be sold if others arrive, and L'Equipe have been reporting that Jermain Defoe will today finally seal a move to Pompey - so it could add up?

To say I would be devastated if Benjani left Pompey would be an understatement. As sad as I was when Gary O'Neil and Matty Taylor left, just the thought of us selling the fella leave me - and I will openly admit - close to tears...

All this is currently 'speculation' but it is gathering momentum, and as I said at the start of the day my worst fears were that Benjani might be sold - and it looks as though he might?

PLAY UP POMPEY!

The worst case scenario id Baros is in to replace Benji & no one else turns up! Though it will sad to lose Benji, he is probably at his peak for selling. At 29 & what 2 & a bit years on his contract, it does make some sense providing we get another striker in. If Sasha is selling to balance his books it's bad for us.

I really hope these reports are rubbish - it would be a terrible move if we let Benji go. I'd be devastated too! First Sacha's reported to be selling, then our top scorer is reported to be leaving - this is a stressful day!
