Shrewsbury announce that Charlie Daniels is leaving, and Solent commentator says that a source has confirmed that he is on his way to Pompey.

Daniels will do a good holding job for us this season hopefully will help us get the job done. He is not the future that’s for sure so hope it’s only a short term contract

An experienced Premier League player in the dressing room can only help with the promotion push I'd think - hopefully he could be a positive influence.

Joe Gallen mentioned signings, plural, leading to a bit of speculation that Marc Pugh is incoming too.

I can't see us signing Daniels and Seddon.

Wouldn't be the first time brinkmanship backfires, and a club ends up with both!

I can see a scenario where brinkmanship backfires and a club ends up with neither, but not both! Especially when we have a limited squad size.

I don't see Souttar coming in. I think the club sees the priority as another box-to-box midfielder as competition for Andy Cannon, and that will be where the last remaining squad place will go.

I don't disagree that we need another back-up centre back, but remember that we have Bolton, Naylor & Downing that can play there, in the highly unlikely scenario that we lose 2 or 3 of Jack, Raggs and Nicolaisen. If there is any recruitment for the CB position, it will be a U21 premiership loanee that won't take up a squad space. (That's assuming we won't be able to ship Downing and/or Bolton out, which is looking unlikely).

We need Naylor in midfield and Bolton plus Downing will certainly dent any hopes of promotion

Completely agree, but the point is where is the greater priority for that one remaining squad place? IMHO, it's in midfield, not CB. Without the squad cap, it's a different story.
