Emana says he is close to joining Pompey. Toulouse’s defensive midfielder Achille Emana has insisted that a deal is close to bring him to Fratton Park.

Emana said: ‘Yes, Toulouse and Portsmouth are negotiating.?

‘I have been playing in France for six years now, and I would like to know something else.?

‘The Premier League is a fantastic championship, it interests me a lot.’

A fee has almost been agreed with Toulouse and it will then be down to whether Portsmouth can match the players demand. Peter Storrie has denied that a deal is close insisting that negations are in an early stage.

Do we need another central midfielder? Why are we going to sign this guy and offer Richard Hughes a new contract! We would then have three defensive midfielders. If Harry is trying to improve our defending we need defenders.

In other news- Harry will watch Zigic today to decide which of his four possible striker targets he will attempt to sign.
