In what The Daily Mail say is an ‘exclusive’ Edgar Davids going to come out of retirement to sign for Pompey!

EXCLUSIVE: Dutch star Edgar Davids to make surprise return to English football with Premier League strugglers Portsmouth – here.

The former Ajax, Juventus, Milan, Spurs and Dutch international has been without a side since leaving Ajax last summer but is ‘said’ to have opened ‘tentative talks’ with Pompey officials over a move to Fratton…

It is also ‘claimed’ that Leicester has been closing in on the 36-year-old after holding ‘secret talks’ with Davids over a £20,000 per week deal that we will match?

Davids has not played competitive football in well over 12-months but this time away from the game is ‘said’ to have ‘revived his appetite’ for it.

Quite how much Davids would have to offer ‘if’ there is any truth to this anyway remains to be seen – as good as the guy was I would find it hard to think he could return to the game after such an absence to cope with the demands of the premier league?

I guess it would be a boost to the club to attract a name such as Davids on a short-term contract, even if it is a name that is now well past his prime…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
