Defoe to Pompey

SSN breaking news. This is one I hope they have right. Defoe has no intention of signing a new contract so I'd rather cash in on him and he can go off and score 10 goals in 10 games for his new club before losing his touch and composure in-front of goal until he's benched. Get Bent fit, and get him playing. Could still do with another striker though. Maybe one of the 'wonder kids (scoff) can get a promotion.

Gilberto has failed his medical. Makes you wonder how the heck Woodgate did.

UPDATE: Gilberto deal maybe back on. Apparently, the issue concerns 'wages'. For a 30+ player, there should be no issue. Tell him to fuck off, and its done and dusted.

Strange that on the official site they actually remark that Defoe was sold because he had less than 18 months left on his contract. It's almost like a guilt-trip attempt, a last strike.

Anyway, I am sad to see him go, though maybe Bent might actually play a game these days.

It's a much more balanced squad now and with Keane starting every game by default, Defoe was never going to feature regularly.

Does Ramos have ideas of throwing Taarabt in as a makeshift striker?
