Cooper, who played seven times for Pompey during the 2001/2 season, trained with the club on Tuesday following a trial with Torquay.

Whittingham, also hoping to extend Bondz N'Gala's spell at the club, told the Portsmouth News: "We've said before that we think Shaun would add value to the squad.

"We will have to wait and see if that is possible or not.

"The budget is not set. If there is a player and the board think it's possible and if we would like to do it, then there is a possibility."

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
