No More January Sales At Pompey

Last updated : 09 January 2009 By Sam
Pompey have recently sold two of their regular first team players in Lassana Diarra and Jermain Defoe but Storrie is adamant that no further sale's will take place.

"Let me make it abundantly clear, there will be no more players sold," Pompey's executive chairman told The News.

"We do not need to sell any more players. Jermain wanted to go, so he went and I can assure you he will be the only one.

"As far as anyone else wanting to leave, there have been no others speaking to me about it whatsoever. Everyone else is perfectly happy at this football club.

"At the end of the day, you want to keep a player like Jermain Defoe, but clearly his head had been turned.

"When you get in that situation, sometimes you can persuade players to stay, other times it's quite clear they have no intention of changing their mind.

"With Jermain that was that, his mind was made up and he wanted to go. Of course it was disappointing, but there was nothing we could do about it.

"But that's it, none of the others will be leaving. We are now concentrating on bringing others in and strengthening the squad."
