Millwall stalwart in talks over permanent Portsmouth move

PAUL Robinson is talking to Portsmouth about a permanent move to Fratton Park.

The long-serving Millwall centre back, who is currently on loan at Pompey, could now depart The Den in January.

Robinson has made 22 appearances for Portsmouth, who are 14th in League Two.



The 32-year-old's deal with the Lions expires in the summer, so he will be allowed to leave on a free transfer if Pompey make the right contract offer.

"There are two clubs involved, so I have been speaking to Millwall as well as speaking to Portsmouth," Robinson told the Portsmouth News.

"I need to reach an agreement with both sides for it to be something that works effectively for me. I am looking to stay here.



"I enjoy working and playing here and playing for the manager. It's a good group of lads and it feels like the club is very, very close to taking off.

"It would be lovely to be part of the group of lads that makes that happen. We've been discussing a loan extension and a permanent deal so we will see what happens.

"Millwall haven't said I'm free to go at the moment, so there are still plenty of discussions to be had. It only takes a couple of suspensions or injuries and it can all change.

"So we will just have to wait and see what materialises. I've really enjoyed my time here. It's a great club.

"These things always seem to drag out a little bit but hopefully something can get sorted."

    There have been times this season when we have sorely missed him. A great organiser and we owe him for getting us to the Championship and doing his bit to keep us up. At 32 he is unlikely to be part of Holloway's vision for the future, but he will always be guaranteed a hero's welcome down at the Den. A true Millwall legend.

    Will be the end of an era when he goes but it's the right thing for everyone concerned. Good luck, Robbo

    Robbo was a dominant in the air and gave his all in every appearance, sure he wasn't the most gifted player technically but he played within his limits and made up for the rest with desire. Qualities we are maybe missing these days, but probably right time for him to prolong his career elsewhere. Good luck mate and hope to see you back at the Den some day soon.

    Without the injuries he could have still been the big man at the back... Just lost the pace but I've seen some great games from him. One of the best was the games against Huddersfield in the playoff semi's... A Club great.

    Still a better CB than Dunne with his eyes shut. Losing his place and the club captaincy must have hurt him. Very poor judgment call by Holloway and a bit if an insult to a great club man.

      @Glasshalffull: I don't disagree with you, but I thik it was his ability on the ball that did for him. Dunne, and I know some will disagree with this, actually has decent control and can deal with the ball under pressure, he seeks the ball and is comfortable in possession.

        @glyngo: i agree..dunnys playing there cos olly wanted someone who dont just hoofs it in the air..robbo could play out of defence (we have witnessed it)..but not very often..he probably had his best seasons playing along side whitbread..imo he's no legend CB that title belongs to Kitch

          @Jim28: Be a very long time before we see another ' B. Kitchener ' .....if ever, Witbread was good at the Den, but lost it when he moved on. ( NOLU, WDC. ).

            @BUSHWACKER14: Rhino was a great CB for me, I also really rated the Sean Dyche/Stuart Nethercott partnership. Darren Ward was also a very classy player, not blood and guts, but he had composure and read the game brilliantly.

            @BUSHWACKER14: Also mustn't forget Steve Wood, he was another classy player who didn't mess about.
