Lassana Diarra’s appearance against Bolton yesterday and his own words appeared to cast ‘slight doubts’ over his move to Madrid, but this will be signed, sealed and delivered on January 1st – assuming a medical is successfully completed tomorrow, which should be a mere formality.

Pompey issued this statement on the Pompey Site: ‘Lassana Diarra has agreed to join Real Madrid in January.

‘Pompey agreed a deal with the Spanish champions for the 23-year-old France international last Wednesday.

‘The deal is subject to Diarra completing a medical and signing a contract, both of which are due to take place tomorrow (Monday).

‘Diarra, who has played for Le Havre, Chelsea and Arsenal.’

Best of luck to Lassie, hopefully one day we will meet again – and of course if we do with him still at Madrid then that would mean only one thing, champions league, well we can at least dream…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
