Oliver Thormet will now not sign for Pompey!

The Lens midfielder was going to be a £6 million signing for Pompey, but will be staying at his club according to his president after transfer collapsed.

‘I can confirm there are two chances in two that he [Thomert] will stay with Lens next season. We had some contact late last night [Monday] with Portsmouth. They were not successful and Olivier Thomert will stay with us,’ he told the official Lens website.

‘The talks were not successful but not because of a lack of desire on the part of RCL, but because none of the conditions [of the transfer] were fulfilled, particularly concerning the player,’ he added.

Is this another cover up (I THINK IT COULD BE!)

According to the Steaua Bucharest official website defender Mirel Radoi has also turned Pompey down. I don’t know why but i don’t think these deals are dead.
