In an interview on Thursday, former Pompey administrator Andrew Androniko who is now representing Ben Haim, added a compromise was close to being completed with the defender.

"I am deeply concerned about the immediate future of the club," Androniko told The News.

"But I am convinced that if both parties, the club and the players, can come to the table and stop conducting such personal negotiations through the media, a compromise will be reached."

He added that the club were within £250,000 of reaching an agreement with Ben Haim.

Just to clear things up, Lens said in an interview that if PSV wanted to sell him (accept a bid), he would leave but if they wanted to keep him (reject any saints bid), he would be happy to stay, he wants first team football and seems very professional, which is good if saints can sign him. according to dutch papers PSV would be willing to let him go for 10 mil euros, just over 8 million pound, but I'm sure southampton are negotiating the best deal possible which they always do, if they don't think the player is worth that much they will look for other targets.

It's funny now that Robert Snodgrass is leaving Leeds,he is no longer a decent player.I'm sure if they were Premier league it would be different.Same bitter Leeds managed by a bitter manager.If promises are made and not kept there can be no complaints.

Colchester United fan here, just came over to say many of the U's fans I've spoken to are deeply saddened by what has happened to Portsmouth FC as a very built community town we know how important a football club is to everyone involved. Best wishes to the club, the fans and the young generation of players that will have to fill the gap for Portsmouth. Hope to be seeing a many few down at ours for the second game of the season, it may not seen like it but every proper football is behind you! Again best wishes and all the best for the future of not just Portsmouth but the heritage of English football

So let me get this right , schalke , hamburg , roma n spanish teams have all tabled bids of around 7m for Joselu , yet a weat ham fan thinks he will go to them for just over 4m? Get real , if he has any ambition why would he join big (corrupt) sams rug sorry football team . You're a yoyo club who are not bothering any of the premier league . You will end up with kenwyn jones n james collins .

To those Derby Fans thinking we are
Done in Transfer market are wrong.
Quotes Taken from Clough and Glick
state they see good deals can be
done later on in the WIndow.

They still need

Left back
Centre Back Cover
Right mid Cover
1-2 Strikers

4 Trialists are with them currently
all 18 and none of them play in the
Posistions we need so they will
be for the future not first team.

Some of the players will be scouted
at the Olympics.
with the source saying they are
looking at players from senegal,
japan and Uruguay.

To ipwich fan who posted 1400 hours yesterday. We buy players from leeds becuse they are good enough to play in prem . Unlike ipswich who dont have one player good enough to get in our team, i would spend your time helping jewell find away to lift your team out of the bottom half championship ist time in years. Sort out your 70 million debt. Let us worry about norwich.

Rangers Newco to take advantage of Pompey's dire situation and petition the Football League for membership. Obviously a long way to go and there is no telling if the majority of the teams will accept Rangers' application.

The Rangers' fans and adminsitration would prefer this option as the SFA initiated transfer embargo will be automatically lifted, and the club will be in a better position going forward financially if they were to take part in the English League set up. Unconfirmed reports suggest Rangers' fans would prefer this too as they might actually get to see decent opposition play against them and for the the increase in revenue for playing in the more prestigious League One (with appearances in the much-coveted Johnstone's Paint Trophy).

Watch this space!

PSV aren't going to just let one if their prized assets leave on the cheap. I think 10 million euros is a fair price for the young Dutch International & I just hope we pay that & bring him to the club. He'd perfectly fit the void left by Oxlade-Chamberlain. I think getting him could be crucial to us surviving in the Prem. Just need 1 if not 2 centre backs & a keeper with some Prem experience incase any thing happens to Kelvin Davis or he doesn't cut it.

I think we have a team to survive in the prem currently but i completely agree apart from that

MELTON professional footballer Paul Anderson has this morning signed for Bristol City on a two-year contract.The 24-year-old winger joined City on a free transfer after Nottingham Forest failed to offer him a new deal before his contract expired.

Several Championship clubs had expressed an interest in securing his services including Blackpool, Huddersfield, Hull City and Cardiff City, but Anderson was impressed by what Robins manager Derek McInnes had to offer at Ashton Gate.

Dad Phil said: "He really liked the area and what Derek McInnes had to say. He had several options, but Bristol City were the most proactive throughout. He felt this was the club that wanted him the most and their style of football will suit him."

Anderson made around 120 appearances in four seasons with Forest, signing from Liverpool in 2008 after a successful season on loan at the City Ground. During his time Forest made the promotion play-offs in two successive seasons, but missed out in the semi-finals on both occasions.

Anderson will join City's pre-season tour to Scotland before heading back to Bristol for a friendly with derby rivals Rovers ahead of the new campaign.

Ironically his first competitive league game in Bristol's number 21 shirt could be a return to his former employers when City kick off their Championship season at Forest on Saturday, August 18.
