Harry expecting Nugent exit

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp expects striker David Nugent to complete a loan move to Ipswich Town in the near future. The 22-year-old England international has struggled to make his mark at Fratton Park since his £6million summer arrival from Preston North End, scoring three goals in 16 appearances for Pompey. He is currently trying to shake off a groin problem and Redknapp expects Nugent to head to Portman Road as soon as he regains full fitness. Redknapp told BBC Radio Solent: "It should be tied up in the next few days. It's a good deal for us financially too which is important. "Chief executive Peter Storrie has been dealing with their chairman (David Sheepshanks) and they have made a good offer. "Lots of clubs have asked about taking David, but Ipswich are the only ones to come forward with a decent offer. "David is interested in going, so we're just waiting for his injury to clear up, which should be in the next few days."
