A new, and somewhat surprising name, has been added to the ‘linked to Pompey’ collection – this man being Spurs’ Giovani dos Santos.

The teenager, who had been one of the most sought after youngsters around, has not really enjoyed a fruitful time with Spurs since his arrival and does not seem to be one of Jamie’s Dads ‘golden boys’, so his chances of forging out a career in London look slim?

Lyon have been linked with the 19-year-old along with several teams back in his homeland of Mexico but sky sports news is under the impression that we are in talks with Spurs over a possible deal to bring him to Pompey – which would have to be a permanent deal as we are out of loan moves we can make, and £7m is being mentioned! An amount that seems unlikely, even more so seen as this is some £2m plus more than Spurs paid Barcelona in the summer.

The fella is talented, without a shadow of a doubt he has quality oozing out of him but he seems to go against the grain of what Tony Adams says he is looking for – proven premier league players who could go straight into the Pompey side and do a job…

Time will tell I guess what the score is on this one, while ‘other reports’ are saying that Citeh’s youngster Daniel Sturridge is being courted as well. However these reports say we are looking for a loan deal, but we cannot do this as we have no more domestic loans available!

There are also some reports growing that Bolton are to offer £2m for Sean Davis, who is of course out of contract at the end of the season so will walk away for nothing should he not agree a new deal – something that we are supposedly keen on him doing? We need the bodies, but the longer that things go on without a new deal being signed the more likely it is looking that he will be leaving in the summer anyway…

So, what do we make on these ‘reports’ guys?

PLAY UP POMPEY!
