Bruce To Beat Pompey For Pennant

Bruce To Beat Pompey For Pennant


Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce is set to beat Portsmouth in the race for Liverpool wingman Jermaine Pennant who is available on a free transfer.

The former Birmingham player has been on loan at Portsmouth but it`s his connections with Bruce from their days together at St. Andrews` that will swing a deal the way of the Latics.

With Antonio Valencia off to Manchester United at the end of the season there is a massive void down the Latics right that needs to be filled and Bruce sees Pennant as just the man to do it.

Bruce stuck by Pennant during troubled times and the former England under 21 star hasn`t forgotten that, the deal should be tied up in the next few weeks.

It makes sense as he is a decent player and we will probably be bringing in a lot of people this summer. We will have more money to shore up other areas as well.
