Burnley have offered £3 million for Nugent?

The Chief Executive Officer at Portsmouth, Peter Storrie is reported in the media saying Burnley have made a £3 million bid for David Nugent to make his loan deal permanent.

It would appear Burnley also have an automatic agreement in place as part of the original loan contract to be able to automatically extend the loan. Both the club and David Nugent himself are believed to prefer the loan option at this stage with the former Bury and Preston striker wanting to make a decision on his future in the summer.

Portsmouth though are of course in dire financial trouble and would be tempted to sell the player in the January window to ease their debts. A number of clubs are believed to be interested.

Storrie told Soccernet on Sunday: 'Burnley will either extend the loan or buy him, they have now made an offer to make the loan permanent.'

£3 million could be an attractive offer to Pompey despite this being only half the amout they paid Preston North End for his services in the summer of 2007.

Soccernet also state that the £3 million has been accepted by the financially stricken club.It looks like talks between the two clubs over the next 24 hours or so will now revolve around deciding whether a loan or permanent deal is the way to go. Nugent's current loan contract is due to expire on Tuesday 26th January but it has already been confirmed that he will be eligible to play in the crucial match against Bolton at the Reebok on Tuesday night

Just wonder if we buy him permanently what they have agreed salary wise. Interesting development though, the club definitely seem to want to keep him come what may.

There is some internet gossip around that the £3m might have been the figure quoted as an option to buy in the original loan contract

That does seem rather a lot of money. On current form is simply not worth it. I say give Pats a chance now he is back, with A N other. Basically two up front! Two wingers, One attacking midfielder one holding midfielder and 4 defenders. Doesn't that sound exciting!

Thats a good idea we have to firstly get the middle of the deffence solid & look to Clone Mears so he can play both at right back & left back. people keep talking about when Steven Caldwell returns i like caldwell he isa work horse but in the premiership he can not cope

£30 is too much for the man....But please take him anyway, and if you don't, no doubt his boyfriend at Bolton will come calling for him again!

I don't think we have enough presence in the middle playing just two in there. Pretty much all of our best and most successful over the past season and a half has come with more of a 4-5-1 turning to 4-3-3 formation when we attack. Not playing 4-4-2 doesn't mean we're any less attacking. I'd play Nugent up top with Fletcher (left), Eagles (right) and McCann, Alexander and McDonald in the middle with Wade dropping to the bench.

Fletcher left Matt - Do you not think Fletch has been much more impressive since his move to a central role? I do agree with you though about the formation. I would have Fletch in the central role with Eagles on one wing and Wade/Pato on the other ( this may also suit the new French lad?). Centre of the park as you say.
