This will probably come as no surprise to many, and this has seemed likely for some time now but it appears that Milan Baros will not be returning to Pompey next season – well that is if you believe setanta sports

We were given first option to sign him after his loan move but no mention of us is given by Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas, who it is claimed has admitted that he is ‘on the market’, telling Le Progres: ‘two German clubs contacted us and would be interested in his signing.

‘He is on the market, but the option to have three strikers next year can be interesting.’

As said before, I thought the guy worked really hard – most of the time – and his movement was excellent, with him often proving an ideal foil for Jermain Defoe – the problem was he never, ever looked like scoring! So with the amount we would probably have to payout for him I have never expected him to sign to be honest…

He is starting tonight for the Czech’s, so maybe he can turn a few heads against the Portuguese? I fancy he will do well in a Czech win but I am often wrong!

Maybe he still will return next season, but I cannot see it to be honest – can you?
