We have been ‘linked’ with Charlton winger Jerome Thomas before and it is ‘claimed’ that we are looking to make a deadline move for him today.

Harry Redknapp has admitted to The News that he would like Thomas, but has also said that Charlton are not keen on the idea of loaning him – as he appears to want: ‘I have tried to loan Jerome Thomas. He’s a young player with talent.

‘I don’t know if that will happen, I think they would sell rather than loan him.

‘We have two forward players at the moment, there is no-one to come off the bench. That is a problem for us’.

Redknapp has also said that no one will be leaving Pompey unless others arrive: ‘There is not a lot of time left.

‘I doubt if any will go out unless we can get a couple in.

‘I won’t let anyone go unless that happens.

Benjani is being ‘linked’ with Man City, while Jermain Defoe is once again being ‘linked’ with a move here.

Others also ‘rumoured’ to be courting interest are Lauren – with Real Mallorca keen, so some sort of cash plus player deal could be possible with Jonas Gutierrez and Sean Davis has also been ‘linked’ with a move to Everton or Boro.
