As far the ‘reports’ are going Matty Taylor is having no shortage of clubs chasing him, which is not a surprise as he is a quality footballer. Now The News is reporting that Scottish giants Rangers are now leading the chasing pack?

I think that the vast majority, if not all of us have accepted – and probably long ago – that Taylor’s time with Pompey is up – it is just a case of where he will go and for how much?

Personally, if he is to go I think the sooner he went the better as I am feed up with all the talk surrounding him and we just need to get this finished with once and for all, one way or another. I would hate to see another Gary O’Neil style deadline day move.

Boro, Fulham, Reading, Everton and West Ham are just a few clubs that have been ‘linked’, even today Bolton were being ‘reported’ as offering £3m for him, which was said to have been the most offered, but this still falls below last weeks ‘reported’ £5m asking price, which was said to have put off Fulham.

To be honest – and no big secret here – like most of you I do not want the fella to leave but if he is not part of the ‘future vision’ then it is a sacrifice that we will have to accept – I just pray that we do not let him go on the cheap as a player of his quality will not be easy to replace, and the cheaper we let him go the harder this will become…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
