Nicky Shorey on the verge of Portsmouth deal, Gennaro Gattuso linked to Arsenal
Transfer deadline day rages on at a relatively furious pace…
Nicky Shorey to Portsmouth
Sky Sports News are reporting that the Aston Villa left-back is on his way to Fratton Park for a medical. Shorey will avoid the prospect of Championship football by limiting his move to the South Coast to a season-long loan deal.
The Carlo Cudicini and David James switch-a-roo
Rumours that Jamo will jump ship to join ‘Arry at the Lane have been circulating for a few weeks, but The Daily Mail suggest Portsmouth have rejected a swap deal with Carlo Cudicini. Despite the rebuff, The Times say Mr Redknapp and Mr Levy are currently at Loggerheads over whether they should bring in the 39-year-old shot stopper.

This may be true, but Gattuso ain’t going nowhere.
