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.
