Linvoy Primus, a very familiar face to all Pompey fans, will be making his return to the club next week – but for how long will he be back for?

His loan with Charlton official ends after their meeting with Derby on Monday, so he will then return to Pompey looking to add to his 219 1st team appearances to date.

To call him a ‘popular defender’ would be an understatement, he is on a par with most of us – well, bar the fact that he probably earns more in a week than most of us would in a year, but does not flaunt it and always remembers where he has come from and just how important we are to the club – and is a footballer that we all respect and admire, and I dare say would all love to see pull on the blue shirt again…

He will have couple of weeks before the January transfer window opens, and a few during it, to convince Tony Adams that he is worth keeping for the remainder of the season – and indeed his contract as it currently stands, as this ends in the summer.

Primus has fought back from a career threatening injury, so after a year out he just wants to play – in an ideal world he, and we, would love that to be at Pompey, but if that cannot be the case then I am sure that no one would begrudge him the chance to move on and nor would anyone stand in his way with a free transfer being granted to him if needed I am sure.

To be honest I have not seen him playing for Charlton, but have heard pretty decent reports on his performances for them, but could he make the step-up to top-flight football again? Even if he could would he play enough football to want to stay with the club for what may well be the final 6-months of his footballing career as a player…

My heart says he will stay, and even play a bit here and there again proving that he is more than worth his place in the side but in all honesty my head tells me his Pompey days are over and he will move on permanently come the turn of the year – either way, and sentiment does not have a place in football anymore, it would be fantastic if he could be given that chance to say what will most likely be a farewell – as a player – to the Pompey fans.

I guess Primus has been written off several times in the past, only to come back, so nothing with this fantastic man surprises me so we can never say never…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
