Luke Varney - Portsmouth FC Season 2011 - 2012

11 England FW Luke Varney

Nottingham Forest Bid for Varney bid turned down

The Fratton Faithful have already seen the departures of four key players over the last month. Liam Lawrence, Erik Huseklepp, Hayden Mullins and Stephen Henderson all left the club on loan with an eye to a permanent move in the summer to assist the club’s financial problems, but with the loan transfer window closing on March 22, are we expecting more players to move before then?

Luke Varney was heavily linked in the red-top papers with a move to Nottingham Forest to be re-united with former Pompey manager Steve Cotterill, however it appears the club are keen to keep Varney as he remains one of the remaining attacking threats in the squad.

Pompey boss Michael Appleton is a big fan of Varney despite having to wait for a number of months to see his return from fitness after a long time on the sidelines during the winter months, however Varney is back and raring to go and only a silly bid is likely to tempt the club in to selling him.

Forest were looking to capture the former Blackpool man before their clash with Leeds United tonight, however as proposed in all the other deals for players leaving, Pompey wanted guarantee of a permanent deal in the summer if he was to leave on loan – something Forest were not willing to agree to with possible relegation also on the cards for them.

Cotterill said in the Daily Express and Star: “It is a bit disappointing that it took a week to get an answer. At this moment, he is staying with Portsmouth.”

The News also revealed that there was interest from Leeds United as well however Appleton and administrator Trevor Birch had confirmed there would be no further players leaving unless significant bids came in that would benefit the club financially.
