Benjani in City Talks

Benjani in City Talks

Portsmouth striker Benjani is reportedly in talks at City with a view to completing a move to the blues in a £5 million deal.

The Portsmouth striker is currently sat third in the Premiership scoring charts with 12 goals so far this season.

It wasn't always the case for the Zimbabwean as he struggled to find his feet last season at Fratton Park which led to some criticism from Pompey's supporters.

Is Benjani the answer to City's scoring problems?

oi sven...NO! hands off our Benji. Andy Legott, Benji got no stick from our fans last year, his workrate and enthusiasm are second to none, the fella is a legend down here. if you get him for anything less than 10 mill, it's a bargain. TBH, would rather he stayed with us and we didnt sign anyone else.

Take £3 million with Dickov, I think that is a good deal.
