Double Transfer Swoop Rejected

Pompey boss Harry Redknapp made a cheeky £1.5 million joint offer for full-back Griffin and striker Lua-Lua who are both unable to secure a regular place in Sir Bobby Robsons fiirst team squad.

"We made a £1.5 million offer on Friday night but they said we could only have Lua Lua, not Griffin for that fee, but we said we want both of them or nothing" Pompey chairman Milan Mandaric told Sky Sports News.

"Our offer was for two players, not one and now I will talk to my manager to see if it's possible for us to move forward tomorrow.

"We rate Griffin very highly but unless Newcastle make a move on this it won't happen.
