John Sullivan: Not keen on Wombles stay

The 25-year-old spent the last couple of months of last season on loan at Kingsmeadow and helped the Dons avoid relegation on the final day.

Manager Neal Ardley offered Sullivan a permanent switch but he has instead opted for Pompey and will sign a two-year deal when his Addicks contract expires on July 1.

He told Portsmouth's website: "I'm very excited to be joining Pompey.

"I was down at Wimbledon for the final part of last season. It's a great club and I owe them so much.

"But this is a great opportunity to come to a big club at the start of a new project. As soon as I heard of Pompey's interest, it was an easy decision. This is where I wanted to come."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
