According to TWTD.co.uk Pompey will soon wrap up a move for Grant Leadbitter?
With another former Pompey transfer target, Keith Andrews, set to complete a loan move to Ipswich this will see us land another Ipswich captain, having signed their previous one Chuck this summer, from them.
TWTD.co.uk says: ‘Blackburn Rovers midfielder Keith Andrews will complete his loan move to Town tomorrow in time to make his debut against his former club Hull City on Saturday.
‘TWTD understands that the 30-year-old Irishman’s recruitment is set to trigger skipper Grant Leadbitter’s departure to Portsmouth.‘
‘We understand the addition of a further central midfielder will see Grant Leadbitter move on to Portsmouth.
‘The 25-year-old was linked with Birmingham City earlier in the summer but that deal fell through after the change of manager at St Andrew’s.
‘The former England U21 international, who was mentioned in connection with a possible £2 million move to Wigan in January when he was also linked with West Ham and Wolves, is now set to be reunited with his former Blues team-mate David Norris at Fratton Park.‘
Interesting, lets see what happen…
