The Nugent Update

The Nugent Update

It is no secret that Brian Laws wants to keep David Nugent on loan until the end of the season but Portsmouth have yet to agree an extension to his loan which will run out after the Bolton match on Tuesday night(26th January)

Brian Laws explained the position:

'David is eligible to play in the (Bolton) game and then a decision has to be made by Portsmouth. We have to be patient.They know what we want to do and David knows what he wants to do. It's just getting everyone together and making the right decision.'

Earlier in the week Nugent indicated he would like to stay at Turf Moor until the end of the season but only on loan. He would then like to make a decision on his long term future in the summer.

Some Clarets fans think this could mean he might then be willing to listen to other offers if Burnley could not agree a permanent deal and meet his salary expectations. He could also be waiting to see if we remain a Premier League club before considering his options.

One club in particular who might be interested of course is Bolton Wanderers with Owen Coyle known to be an admirer of the former Bury and Preston striker.

Under FIFA rules though it is not possible to play for three clubs in the same season under the loan system so either Nugent remains at Turf Moor on loan or he faces an uncertain future at Portsmouth.Portsmouth might decide to bring him back to Fratton Park where a buyer could be sought in view of their financial predicament. They would have to work fast though to complete a deal before the end of the January window on February 1st and they already seem to be dragging their heels in terms of making a decision about the loan extension.They clearly have more pressing things to think about!

If Nugent does return, he could find himself sidelined for the rest of the season at a club he does feel any sympathy for especially if Pompey's transfer embargo is lifted and new strikers are brought into the club.

It's all in the lap of the Gods at the moment and we may have to wait until the day after the Bolton game on Tuesday night to know if we have been successful.

Flipping heck this is dragging on. What do you reckon will he stay? Not sure how original deadline of 22nd January was being banded about unless they have agreed a few days grace until 26th January

If Nimani gets his expected international clearance, Laws will have all his strikers to choose from on Tuesday night namely Fletcher, Thompson, Nugent, Paterson, Nimani and Jay Rod! Shall we play 4-0-6? lol

Portsmouth expect their transfer embargo to be lifted on Monday so that could be crucial to them making a decision on Nugent

I really hope he stays until the end of the season. If he is leaving his options open, then he'll have to play some good football to impress potential buyers. The ideal scenario is that he plays superbly, scores goals that help us stay where we should be, then signs for us if we can afford him ! 4-0-6 ?? Lets go for it, gung ho rules ok.

He could terminate his £40k a week contract or negotiate a sale as Portsmouth would listen to offers from Burnley, He has made it clear he wants to play at Burnley, but has high earning ruined another player? I dont see anyone paying that money for him anymore, as he failed to prove himself under Redknapp, Adams or Hart? Maybe he really didnt like being away from home, and therefore his football suffered, but he has done little to secure that sort of wage again, not yet anyway?

The only reason he is holding out on a decision is because he will be out of contract at the end of the season and he wants to go for nothing so e can claim the 3.5m transfer fee as a siging on fee screwing the club that he is employed by. Pompey would be mad to allow him to stay on laon only to screw themselves out of money they desperately need. Nugent cost Pompey a fortune and has delivered nothing. If he doesnt sign a permanent deal with Burnley now he should be recalled to Pomey and left to rot in traing, not even getting a game in the reserves.

Bit harsh! We could probably take him off your hands tomorrow in a permanent deal transfer fee wise but we would not be able to break our salary cap of a very low £15k/week and Nugent has further stated he is not prepared to move on a perm deal just yet. The ball is firmly in Pompey's court and to some degree Nugent's

Is he definitely out of contract come June/July 2010? I thought he had another year?

Perhaps he wants to play for Burnley until he sees whether we're up or down. If it's the latter perhaps he'll be off to Horwich ?
