With the news that D?Alessandro may not be a Pompey player next year we forgot about the other loaned players at Pompey and whether they would be at Pompey next year?

Vital Pompey can confirm that it is looking less and less likely that Korroman or Routledge will be playing at Fratton Park next year!

Korroman, a player rated by Harry Redknapp but has since returned to his club without receiving a contract offer from Portsmouth.

Is this a huge loss? I?m unsure but I personally would like to see Routledge at our club next year however this is also, looking very unlikely.

I live in Kent and I?ve heard from about four different people that Wayne Routledge has just bought a house here. They all recon that Wayne will be moving to Charlton as it is the closest team to his new house. (But without a manager this may be difficult)

It is too far for him to travel to Portsmouth every morning to Portsmouth as this drive would take about two hours. It is also a long drive to Tottenham being the other side of London. Could he be returning to Palace?

He may just be buying a house to do up and sell on to make some extra money to make up for the reduced wages Pompey are offering him?

In other news- Crystal Palace have turned down three offers, including an eight million pound offer from Bolton. Portsmouth had originally made an enquiry regarding the player, which Palace have apparently named a price of ten million pounds as an acceptable fee.

I don?t think anyone is willing to pay ten million pounds!
