We Get Nugent Back!
Portsmouth have agreed to extend David Nugent's loan to the end of the season.
Nugent had returned to Fratton Park after his loan expired following the Bolton game last Tuesday night. Sky Sports reported he was training with his Pompey team mates on Friday ahead of their Manchester City clash at Eastlands yesterday. In the end he was not named in their eigthteen.
Brian Laws had always made it plain he was keen to extend the loan and his persistence seems to have paid off despite Portsmouth dragging their heels and refusing to make a decision.
It had been thought we might have lost out especially with Nugent back at Portsmouth and there was always a fear he could be sold to make some money for the financially stricken club.
Thankfully this saga is now at an end and hopefully Nugent will be able to now concentrate on helping Burnley FC avoid the drop before making a decision on his long-term future in the summer.
