Updated - Portsmouth Linked With Harrison
Thursday, 31st Jan 2019 11:31
Blues striker Ellis Harrison is reported to be a deadline day target of League One high-flyers Portsmouth, however Wigan's James Vaughan is now said to be undergoing a medical at Fratton Park.
According to the Portsmouth News, Pompey boss Kenny Jackett is looking to add another attacking player to his squad on loan before tonight’s 11pm deadline with James Vaughan, currently with Wigan, and Harrison on his list of targets.
Sky Sports is subsequently reporting that Vaughan is undergoing a medical at Portsmouth, presumably ending any interest Pompey had in Harrison.
The Town striker, 25 earlier this week, is unlikely to start for the Blues now that Collin Quaner and Will Keane have been brought in on loan, but manager Paul Lambert may not have been keen to allow the summer signing from Bristol Rovers to depart in case his first-choice frontmen suffer injuries.
Speaking at last week’s pre-match press conference, Lambert indicated that - aside from Jonas Knudsen - he didn’t expect any more of his first-team squad to move on during this window.

Let’s be totally honest, we’ve not had a good year. I know that’s an understatement and come August we begin in a league we haven’t played in for the majority of most readers’ lives.
Reasons for Relegation by rickw
This week has seen several newspapers print their stories on Ipswich's demise giving their simplistic reason on what's gone wrong.
If Stats Won Games: Small Victories by Kropotkin123
If you think the Premier League is over analysed with meaningless stats by meaningless contributors, have I got a treat for you! With six games to go and a 44% chance of relegation even if we win all six, my attention has turned to more realistic, less fruitful objectives.
