It appears that he hasn't actually spoken to them yet. Paul Hart is supposed to have admitted that he is on his list of targets at Portsmouth after todays match so we have at least 2 chances to get shot of him before the end of the transfer window.

If he goes how much do you think we'll get, 2million?

Looks like it's Phil Permatan Brown v Fat Samuel at Blackburn for his signature?

Tudor - 2 million would be a decent estimate as I'd think that we'd be unlikely to get anymore. By selling him we will also avoid having to pay anywhere up to another 3.87 million based on appearances, as that is what we paid up front for him with the same amount dependent on appearances and he hasn't activated any of these additional clauses so far.

It would be a good deal all round if we could get him away but will he prepared to accept a lower wage?

Pompey, Blackburn and Hull all rumoured to be interested. Please god let it be true! Benjani has talent, but not enough to dislodge Adebayor, Tevez, Robinho, RSC or Bellamy, and he never really wanted to be a Citizen (and it showed!). If there is any justice in this world, he'll end up back at Pompey, a team that he loves and where the fans love him. Goodbye Benji, thanks for the shoulder at the swamp, but I won't especially miss you.

Phil Browns favourite number is 2m so fair bet for the fee, personally a free transfer would be preferable and further fee based on goals scored for the rest of the season, so eventual fee would be 0.

Thanks for the Derby goal Benjani. If you'd been able to keep fit -- things could well have been different. That's assuming you're going. On the other hand if you're fit and hungry... Good luck whatever happens. Any player can have an injury.

Well I wouldn't be keen on playing for Phil Brown or Hull City who are definitely going down either. I still expect him to be gone when Portsmouth come calling.

At least he would get games at Hull, but perhaps we are paying Benjani too much and thats why he wants to stay and get paid for not playing, rather than half the wages and have to work for a living.

Well apparently if he goes it will now only be on loan as he will be unable to get a new work permit before the window shuts. A loan move is possible as the work permit just gets transferred.

Silly Benji! Youc could have returned to Pompey, but now you're stuck in our reserves (OK, work permit probs not really your fault), but you always seem to miss the boat (Plane?!). Hope you get a decent club in January, cause you're unlikely to ever play for City again.
