Toon Set To Sign Pompey Flop?

Last updated : 22 January 2010 By Footy Mad - Editor

Allegedly Chris Hughton is closing in on the signature of Pompey defender Mike Williamson.

A bid - thought to be around £1 million - has been accepted.

The worrying thing is ... Pompey are rock bottom of the Premiership ... and the centre-half has not featured in the first team since a £3million switch from Watford in September.

Chris Hughton: "There has been an offer made which has been accepted and at the moment we're just working on the lad's terms.

"He's a lad with good pedigree.

"He did very, very well at Watford and I have known about him for a while. We were interested in him before he went to Portsmouth but his games have been limited there."
