According to quotes attributed to Milan midfielder Emerson’s agent Vincenzo Morabito in The Mail the Brazilian will be joining Pompey shortly: ‘we are negotiating on behalf of Portsmouth and Milan are ready to sell the player.

‘Emerson’s contract will run out next June and we must consider that.

‘It remains to be seen what his decision will be. He would probably want an 18-month contract.’

This is expected to be a loan until the end of the season, but his agent seems to be suggesting an 18-month deal will see him here right away?

To be honest I would much rather ‘try before we buy’ despite the obvious talent the Brazilian has.

Another that is expected to make the loan move to Pompey is Madrid’s Javier Saviola.

‘Reports’ claim the Argentine striker has ‘snubbed’ Everton and Newcastle in favour of Pompey and will be at Fratton to watch us face Villa tomorrow ahead of a loan until the end of the season?

As said earlier, big names arriving could happen, but for me will only happen on loan – and is that such a bad thing…
