Linvoy Primus is set to return to his former club Charlton… Who once dismissed him early in his career saying he was not good enough!

The fans favourite is closing in on a return from his slight groin injury – having battled back from a career threatening knee injury, and when fit is said to be off to the Valley for a spell on loan. I guess this must be a side issue of the move that has seen Jerome Thomas come to Pompey?

How long this loan will be for is not known, but it is only going to be a loan according to his agent, and is said to only be happening to allow him to play some 1st team football and get himself up to pace before returning and challenging for a place at Fratton.

Harry Redknapp has recently gone on the record as saying he believes ‘Pompey should give Linvoy a job for life’, so lets hope that this loan will be just that, a loan and he can return in a month, or several months time having got himself fully fit…

When you think about it this is not a bad move really is it? 1st team football will be better for him, and give him a better chance of getting himself up to speed than reserve football would. Maybe we could let him stay with Charlton until January, as this will give him the chance to get plenty of games under his belt. We do not need to worry about him getting cup tied either as they are already out of the league cup!


Also, The News is today reporting that Dave Nugent has turned down the advances of Wigan, with it said they were the latest club to show an interest in him. Once again the reason cited is his desire to ‘stay and challenge for a 1st team spot’…

The paper is also reporting that Djimi Traore is still interesting Hull. He rejected a move to them earlier in the summer; with it claimed the offer was £2m! We would have bitten fingers, hands, wrist and arms off is this was the case; it is down to Djimi to accept that a move away is best for him now.
