Reports today are claiming that Pompey will make one last attempt to bring Gary O’Neil back to the club from Boro – and this deal ‘could’ be completed today?

It is said that his agents are ‘pleading’ with Boro for him to be allowed to leave, something that will become all the more likely should Boro complete the signing of Ben Watson, and a fee has been agreed.

£2.5m is being mentioned, which almost certainly would not be enough – considering we already had a £4.5m offer rejected!

I remain convinced that O’Neil will return to Fratton, but this all hinges on Watson joining Boro, which hopefully from our point of view he will.

One player that will not be joining Pompey though is Patrick Vieira.

The Inter man, who of course is a former Arsenal teammate of Tony Adams, has been strongly linked with Pompey but this will not be happening, well not this month anyway?
