It appears as though Harry Redknapp’s dealings this January will be limited to loans and swap deal and the latest ‘rumour’ in the offering is one involving Dave Nugent and Leroy Lita.

A deal that would see the strikers switch clubs?

I sincerely hope that Nugent stays with Pompey but for whatever reason – is it that Redknapp is saving him for another time or is it that he simply does not rate him afterall and does not want him – he cannot seem to get a game no matter what.

Lita is a striker that I would welcome to here and his days with Reading do seem numbered as he has dramatically fallen from grace with them. His attitude worries me slightly though, but his ability on the field cannot be questioned.

Nugent and Lita had a fine partnership at U21 level with England, so if we could find a way of having them both here then I think that this could be a fantastic long term pairing.

I do not know what will happen, like I say ideally I would like both here and hope that a swap deal does not have to take place as I desperately want Nugent to stay with us, not because I want him to prove a success here, but because I am convinced that he will be successful and letting him go will be a big mistake…
