One of the big earners that we need rid of could be about to move on as John Utaka has ‘claimed’ that he has been in ‘talks’ with Sochaux about a move to them and would ‘be on the next plane over’ if they can give him playing time…

I think that most people would be willing to fly over with you to make sure you went John! So on worries there.

Speaking to sky sports he said: ‘I am in talks, that is true. I am not playing at Portsmouth and there is a World Cup coming up in June – I don’t want to miss that.

‘If they (Sochaux) can give me playing time, I will be on the next plane over because I really need that.

‘Hopefully everything will be sorted out quickly so I can focus on my football.’

The PROBLEM is this deal is only said to be a loan…

A loan is good, although with his wages ‘said’ to be at something like £80,000 per week can we honestly think that the French outfit will foot this bill each week?

Nope, thought not – if they paid 50% of that though that would be better than nothing wouldn’t it as there would be a loan free involved too I guess…

So, as Utaka – the not so good attacker – claims to be in talks with over a return to France, Frenchman Freddy P has said, or at least his agent has to France Football, that he is happy with Pompey: ‘all the reports you have heard recently are unfounded,’ he told France Football.

‘Frederic is happy at Portsmouth. For him to leave, Lyon, Portsmouth and the player would have to be in agreement.’

This is better news though, right?

PLAY UP POMPEY!
