Chelski youngster Ben Sahar has previously been ‘linked’ with Pompey this summer, but with a loan move to Holland looking likely the deal for the striker appeared dead – but maybe not…

The Israeli looked set for a season loan move to Dutch club NEC, but they are now reporting that the deal will not take place and he will instead come to Fratton for the season, as had been reported a few weeks back.

We have not said anything on the issue as yet, but NEC seem to believe this is a done deal – not that this makes it so of course…


As we all know there has also been a hell of a lot more Peter Crouch talk over the past 24 hours, with it ‘reported’ that an offer to Liverpool for a deal worth as much as £9m had been rejected.

Latest ‘rumours’ are that we are still offering the £9m package, but have upped our initial outlay to £8m up front with a further £1m to follow in add-ons, with the ‘original’ reports saying £7m had been put on the table with the rest to follow.

You know what to do guys, as always discuss the thoughts from above…
