Having announced him as a signing last week ‘should’ Pompey miss out on Ibrahima Sonko, as sky sports is suggesting we could, it would just about sum up our situation at the moment really wouldn’t it…

A season long loan deal was agreed with Stoke, what, a week or so ago but this was subject to ‘football league approval.

With the football league now, apparently, giving us permission to sign ‘up to 3 players’ you would have expected Sonko to be the first through the door – although as yet, as far as I am aware, this deal has not been 100% confirmed.

As a result, if these ‘reports’ are true, Bristol City may well nip in and sign the defender from under our noses!

Sky sports ‘understands’ that a similar year long loan has been agreed with Stoke so the 29-year-old must now decide where he wants to go – the fact that he worked with Bristol City manager Steve Coppell at Reading ‘probably’ gives them the advantage now…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
