PompeyFcMad on the latest ‘reports’ that Benni McCarthy’s brother has talked up the chances that the South African will come to Pompey in January.
According to reports, rumours linking Benni McCarthy with a January move to Pompey have been stoked up by his brother.
The Blackburn striker is in need to play regular football to have any chance of being in the South Africa squad for next years World Cup. A few days ago rumours were spreading that Benni McCarthy had issued a come-and-get-me plea to Pompey, now them rumours have been stoked up by his brother Jerome McCarthy.
Speaking in South Africa his brother said: ‘Benni told me something is going to happen and chances are he will move to Portsmouth.
‘He was sure when he told me this.
‘It will make more sense for him to leave Blackburn because he’s not playing there.’
Other rumours link Benni with a move to the Spain or Holland, should the reported move to Pompey fall through. The other clubs believed to be chasing McCarthy include Spanish sides Espanyol, Deportivo and his former club Ajax.
If he did move to Pompey, McCarthy will team up with his former Blackburn teammate, Aaron Mokoena. The two South Africans played together for two seasons at Blackburn.
In my opinion this is sounding great, I think Benni will be a great signing especially with Dindane being at the African Cup of Nations, we need another good striker.
