Having not paid their players on several occasions this season Portsmouth have endured a torrid time on and off the field following two messy takeovers so far this season.
But, following former Birmingham owner David Sullivan’s comments that several Premier League clubs are at crisis point, the prices for Hull City and Burnley are looking attractive.
With good news of a buyer on the horizon West Ham are 10/1, a price that would have been a lot shorter in previous weeks whilst Manchester United, despite the headlines of having to sell their best players to finance their debts, are 16/1. Outsiders in the betting include Manchester City, Arsenal and Spurs all at 500/1.
Darren Haines, spokesman for Paddy Power, said: “It won’t be a surprise to Pompey fans to see they are currently the favourites but if Sullivan is to be believed who’s to say some other club might hit the buffers first?”
