Lille lad linked
Starting off with the improbable are the rumours that the last two members of the Bling Boy Baby Bentley Brigade could be on their way out the club. Murmurings suggest the Pompey may be interested in taking both Titus Bramble and Kieron Dyer off our hands, the former on a Bosman, the latter on a mercy killing. Whilst to many a Newcastle fan this would seem like a blessing from above, lets not get too carried away. Can you ever see anyone matching Dyer`s 80k a week? Not me.
The other link is for Lille defender Nicolas Plestan. In what could again just be another agent planting pay rise seeds in the fertile earth of the transfer market, the 25 year old has said he`ll be waiting until the summer to decide his future. Oh, and Pompey want him too.
