SKY Sports are reporting that Pompey have entered the race to sign the much-coveted QPR winger Lee Cook.

QPR chairman, Gianni Paladini, told The Mirror that he remains confident that the club can retain the ‘in-demand’ winger – despite reported interest from Spurs, City, Villa, Fulham and now apparently Pompey.

‘Every time I speak to Lee he insists he’s happy here.’

Paladini slapped a £5million price tag on the talented wingers head recently – and it is believed Fulham tabled a £1.9million bid last week, that was rejected.

Claims are that Harry Redknapp is yet to make his interest ‘public’ but Pompey have already offered £2million – clearly this would be a clincher as QPR were only holding out for £100,000 more!

There seems to be a common theme with the ‘reported’ Pompey targets, they are midfielders or even wingers – who Redknapp has said he would like – but our squad is positively bursting at the seams with midfielders, out and out wingers maybe not so, but without strikers to finish these created chances they will not be much use anyway.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
