Pompey in for Euell

Portsmouth have confirmed that they are interested in signing unsettled Addick Jason Euell. Agent Tony Finnigan has confirmed that Pompey is a likely destination. He said, 'They are interested in Jason and I would love to get him down there because it is a great place to play.' The fee is said to be £1.5m, less than the amount offered by Palace mid-season.

Euell was a £4.75m record buy from Wimbledon four years ago, but his last start was in the FA Cup victory against Rochdale on 8 January. He scored only two goals last season, but didn't have many opportunities.

Some of the Addickted think that he has never been the same since he was absused by fans in the car park, an event that led the club to introduce new security measures for players.

Whatever the truth of the matter, it is time for him to move on both in his own interests and that of the club, even though the Bloke Beside Me will be sorry to see him go. And no doubt he will score for Pompey on his return to The Valley!
