The search for a new striker goes on for Pompey, but it won’t be Fredi Kanoute.
The Times is reporting that ‘Frederic Kanoute has extended his contract with SEVILLE by one year until 2110. The Mali Forward, who was wanted by Portsmouth this summer, has been given a pay rise. A release clause of £17million has been inserted into his new contract’.
Well that knocks on the head one of the longest transfer chases since Harry’s return.
There are two ways to look at this; either we didn’t seriously want Fredi, or this was a cunning ploy by the player and his agent, to get his ultimate demand… a pay rise!
Ultimately we couldn’t offer him European football, but we could offer him his other goal, MONEY. It seems that Seville have capitulated and given into his demands.
So with another one of our targets fallen by the wayside…Whom will be coming to Fratton?
