Baros heading for Lyon exit, as Fred returns

Portsmouth target Milan Baros looks to be on his way out of Lyon following fellow striker Fred's return to first-team action.

Les Gones president Jean-Michel Aulas reiterated on Wednesday that one of Baros or Fred would be leaving in the January transfer window - a stance the club have adopted all month.

But with Fred regaining his place in the starting XI for the league match against Lorient, and later reaffirming his desire to stay at the Stade Gerland, Baros appears the man most likely to leave.

The Czech Republic international - an unused substitute on Wednesday - is on the radar of Pompey after their manager Harry Redknapp declared his interest in the player.

Redknapp has expressed his desire to sign Baros with chief striker Kanu suffering an injury while on African Nations Cup duty.

He said: 'He will make a terrific loan because he knows the English game and it would be nice to have him available this weekend, although there is international clearance and other details to be cleared up yet.

'But Peter Storrie (Pompey's chief executive) has gone to meet Baros' agent to do a deal and it's a great opportunity to add more quality to our squad.

'We are still short of numbers with our players away at the African Nations Cup and one of them, Kanu, getting injured out there. We don't know yet how bad that injury is but it seems to be his knee.

'I feel we still need somebody like Baros, who I believe was a Golden Boot winner at the last European Championships for the Czech Republic and I'm very hopeful we will get him.

'Lyon are a good side and they are overloaded with top strikers. The Brazilian Fred can't get in their team either and will cost about 16 million euros. I think Tottenham are trying to buy him.

'If I can get Baros I might still look for another loan (before the end of the January transfer window) or buy somebody else if another club comes in and offers me silly money for one of my team.'

Aulas added: 'It is agreed that between Fred and Baros, one or the other will leave the club by the end of the transfer window.

'But I can't say which one of the two, as we are continuing to receive offers for both.'

Fred, who had wanted to quit Lyon after losing his place in the first team, is back in favour with coach Alain Perrin and put in a good display against Lorient.

'I am staying at Lyon,' said the Brazil international.

'I am happy to have got playing time again, which is a sign of confidence in me.'

Aulas also confirmed that Lyon were in negotiations with Nice about the signing of Ederson from the southerners.
