Rumour Mill-Hayden We Could Be After Mullins

Rumour Mill-Hayden We Could Be After Mullins

30 year old Portsmouth midfielder, Hayden Mullins is attracting interest from a number of clubs including Burnley according to Sky Sports. Up to half-a-dozen clubs are believed to be interested including Stoke and Middlesbrough

Mullins joined Pompey only 12 months ago from West Ham but has struggled to get a regular place in the side having made just seven starts so far this season.

The former England Under 21 international started his professional career with Crystal Palace having first joined them as a trainee in August 1996.

Mullins signed for West Ham in October 2003 (initially via a short-term loan)for a fee of £600,000 rising to £800,000 should West Ham be promoted.

In January 2009 Mullins joined Portsmouth signing a three and a half year contract.

He is described as a defensive midfielder and he scored just 7 goals in 213 league and cup appearances for West Ham,

Seem to have a habit of being linked with players out of favour at their clubs and struggling to get a starting place!

I wouldn't be massively disappointed with him TMP. He's been involved with premiership clubs for 7 years now, meaning he's got experience and yeh he's not playing regularly for Pompey, but that should make him cheaper. Plus he would give us depth and i would say he's no worse than anyone we have in that position at the mo.

He was rated highly within the West Ham supporters. Could be a good move.

Can you not pay up for Nugent first? £5M should cover it?
21/01/2010 16:24:00
I dont think he would be a bad signing - plenty of premiership experiance as mentioned above
21/01/2010 19:28:00
I wouldn't mid this one at all. Cover for Grezza or maybe a replacement. We need a defensive midfielder really.

Seeing as it is Portsmouth, they would probably greatly accept a fiver for the deal! But have to be honest this wouldn't be a bad signing.
21/01/2010 23:52:00
Would we pay Portsmouth for him or Udinese or the Portsmouth players who haven't had their wages?!

Very odd situation at Portsmouth, let's hope they see sense at Pompey over Nugent and let the loan run until Summer;he clearly wants to stay. The feeling is they have too many other things to worry about than focus on Nugent, hence the delay in sorting out. Believe his contract now runs out on 26th not 22nd has suggested previously

I really feel sorry for Pompey fans, I used to know a young lass Ange Cox who followed them all over the show, probably still does and lives in the NW. I keep on thinking how would I feel if my board were saying stop the transfer embargo and let us spend more cash that we have not got! Sadly all the signs are that they will have to reduce the wage bill somehow. What was Avram Grant thinking when he said YES.
