Back Home - And Still A Few Good Men Short

Pompey return to home-shores friendlies at Oxford on Monday with fans wondering if more new signings are imminent. After a mixed trip to Nigeria and South Africa, in which the Blues beat two local sides but were comfortably beaten by Manchester United, things have been quiet on the transfer front - with no further additions to the recruitment of Peter Crouch, Glen Little and Ben Sahar. Moves in ....

Kaboul On Way - But Not Harry

Harry Redknapp is closing in on his top defensive target Younes Kaboul - while his bosses are playing down reports he could be leaving Fratton Park for Russia. The Blues now appear favourites to sign the £5m French player from Spurs after he reiterated his desire to play for Redknapp. The 22-year-old has rejected a move to Sunderland - that after ....

Tough Target Set As Transfer Twists Go On

Pompey look determined to keep hold of Sulley Muntari by insisting they will not let him go for less than £15m - but their hopes of adding Shaun Wright-Phillips to the squad appear to be receding. The transfer twists came as ambitious keeper David James said next season would be a failure if pompey did not improve on their eighth-placed finish. Following Juventus' interest in Pompey's ....

Davis May Start Pompey Exodus

A £2m move to Hull for Sean Davis seems to be the most likely outward transfer in the offing for Pompey - and it could trigger more departures, plus one or two more arrivals. Speculation is growing the the Tigers see Davis's Premier League experience as the sort of ingredient they will find vital to give them a chance of survival following their promotion in the play-offs last May. Davis ....

Never Mind The Rivals, Hermann's Ready

Pompey's first-choice left-back is fully focused on his second season at Fratton Park - as talk of a new rival for his job gathers pace. Hermann Hreidarsson has spoken of his desire to get the new campaign started, and he does not seem to worried by talk that Harry Redknapp is ready to make a move for Reading's Nicky Shorey or - much to the displeasure of some fans - Chelsea's ex-Southampton ....

One In, One Out On The Right?

John Utaka may be sold to finance the purchase of Shaun Wright-Phillips, reports suggest. The Chelsea and England winger is widely believed to be the Blues' next major transfer target, but there is a growing school of thought that he can be bought only if someone of value is sold first. Weekend reports have linked David Nugent and Sean Davis with moves to Stoke and Hull, and if either or both ....

They're Back - With One Surprise

Pompey's squad had a reasonably relaxed start to the new campaign as they returned to pre-season training with just one surprise new face among them.  Ex-Newcastle and Chelsea full-back Celestine Babayaro was the unexpected addition to the men who were here last season along with summer signings Glen Little and Ben Sahar. Babayaro is on a week's trial with the Blues and will probably be ....

Crouch Will Sign - More Will Follow

Pompey's transfer activity is set to go into overdrive as Peter Crouch arrives back at Fratton Park - possibly to be followed by two or three other new signings within the week. Crouch is due to have a medical with Pompey on Tuesday or Wednesday after Pompey and Liverpool agreed on a fee said to total around £11m for the England striker. Personal terms are not expected to hold things ....

Nugent Faces Fresh Striker Competition

David Nugent is confident this will be his season - but he looks like having more competition than last term in his efforts to hold down a regular first-team place. Nugent has spoken out about what he calls a disastrous first season for himself at Fratton as Pompey step up their attempts to boost their strikeforce for the new camapgin. They are closing in on a deal to buy Peter Crouch for ....

Crouch And Swp Talk Picks Up

Peter Storrie's assertion that transfer activity at Fratton Park will soon pick up has sparked a flurry of stories about big names coming to Pompey - or staying with Pompey. If all are to be believed, we will see Shaun Wright-Phillips teeing up the crosses for Peter Crouch come the new season, with Kanu ready to tap in from a yard if the keeper saves. Just behind him will be Sulley Muntari and ....

Stand By For Fratton Arrivals

Pompey have indicated more signings are around the corner - and it could be that there will be more European arrivals than English ones. So far the Blues have added winger Glen Little and striker Ben Sahar to their ranks, but chief executive Peter Storrie says transfer activity should hot up next week, when many players, agents and managers will be back from their holidays. Storrie told ....

Striker Signs - But Who'll Join Him?

Pompey have made their second signing of the summer - but it's the players they haven't signed who seem to be causing more intrigue at the moment. Teenage Israeli striker Ben Sahar has joined the Blues on a year's loan from Chelsea. He will presumably be back-up to Jermain Defoe, David Nugent, maybe Kanu and whichever other striker(s) the club net before the end of August. But it seems Sahar is ....

Harry Wants Four - Could It Be More?

Harry Redknapp says he'd like to make four more signings before the season begins - and that will probably mean him adding around another six. Estimates of how many buys Pompey will make during any summer or January window tend to be quite conservative, and the final tally is usually a couple bigger than has been predicted. That's good news for Pompey fans, who have begun to get a little ....

Pompey Given An Injury Warning

Steve Coppell has hinted that Pompey may find it hard to keep Glen Little free of the injury problems which disrupted his time at the Madejski Stadium. The Reading boss - sore at losing a player he had hoped to keep - said Little had suffered Achilles problems for more than a year. His comments came as Liverpool told Pompey they wouldn't sell Peter Crouch for the £9m the Blues are ....

Crouch Hopes Fade For Pompey

Harry Redknapp fears the trail to Peter Crouch is beginning to tail off. He is concerned by the lack of movement in Pompey's hopes of landing the England striker at the right price.

Fratton's Revolving Door Slows Down

Another quiet weekend on the transfer front has added fuel to the theory that Pompey's squad won't be as vastly different for the new season as some thought. That's not to say there won't be some significant new faces in the squad come August 16 at Chelsea - but perhaps there won't be as many as were expected at the end of last season. Yossi Benayoun is the biggest name to be linked with Pompey ....

Will Big Signing Follow Little One?

Pompey have made a Little signing - all fans want to know now is when a big one will follow. Glen Little is the Blues' first recruit of the summer.

Some were hoping the first deal of the close season would be a Crouch or a ....

But Redknapp has again been ....

Diarra For Eastlands? Sleep Easy...

Pompey fans needn't worry over reports Manchester City are plotting an £8m bid for Lassana Diarra. For starters, Pompey won't let the star of the final four months of last season go for less than £10m. Add to that the fact Diarra would probably leave Fratton only for Manchester United and you have a story that is going to end in a non-story. Mark Hughes may well be getting his own ....
