Harry Redknapp has confirmed to the Pompey Site that a loan deal for Milan Baros is close – and he could feature this weekend: ‘were hoping to do something with Baros – bring him in on loan. Peter Storrie has gone to meet up with his agent and try to do a deal.

‘He`d be a good loan signing and it would be a terrific opportunity to have a look at him.

‘It would be a loan deal until the end of the season and then we’ll see how it goes from there.

‘It would be nice to have him available for Saturday if the international clearance can be sorted out in time.

‘He’s a good player who’s played at Liverpool and Aston Villa and he’s been the golden boot winner at a European Championships.

‘He’s got pace and he makes good runs.

I know it may be seen as a bit ‘presumptuous’ but I would say that the deal must be almost 100% certain as we would not be making such announcements on the Pompey Site if it was not…

I would not be surprised if I came home tonight after work to find the deal had been confirmed, if it is not the case before I go?

As far as the deal goes, a loan initially seems a fantastic way to go as it almost leaves us with nothing to lose.
