Below is a quick summary of the rumours of the past week, and hopefully, we can keep updating on a regular basis.

Rumoured Transfer Outs

Tugay (Midfield)

The Maestro, The Turkish Midfielder established himself as a fans favourite at Ewood Park, and after 8 seasons of Loyal Service, it is time to wish our hero a farewell. He might be back on a coaching basis, fingers crossed, but time will tell

  • The axe and gally aren’t in this weeks press so they can wait another week, great read, good article lol

  • sas.. I am curious where exactly Pompey would find any cash to buy Santa Cruz. In my eyes, this swap is a 0% chance. We might buy Crouch, but it’ll be with money made from selling Santa to City or Spurs, I don’t see anyone else coming in for Santa either.

  • They have 18m from selling Diara, and 10m from selling defoe, of which they only spent 4m of on Belhadj?

    However I doubt if it will all be spent on RSC.

    Maybe Crouch + 5m or so..

    Id rather have Bent..

  • Its the media mate, I havent made my rumours up yet, which normally involve an aussie or 2, watch this space lol

  • good little run down that sastinator! pompey wont buy Roque… they are on a wage reduction mission at the moment as they are hugely in debt (rumour has it). Which Aussies you got lined up for the summer Sas?
