Is David Nugent’s career at Portsmouth coming to an end? Yes, if you follow these words of the Pompey manager Harry Redknapp:
It should be tied up in the next few days. It’s a good deal for us financially too which is important.
Chief executive Peter Storrie has been dealing with their chairman (David Sheepshanks) and they have made a good offer.
Lots of clubs have asked about taking David, but Ipswich are the only ones to come forward with a decent offer.
David is interested in going, so we’re just waiting for his injury to clear up, which should be in the next few days.
So Ipswich Town have emerged as the most likely destination for the 22-year old striker who was signed from Preston North End for £6 million in the summer. The young striker hasn’t managed to cut the ice at Fratton Park and has scored just thrice in 16 appearances. The fear is that David Nugent is not good enough to play in the English Premier League.
