Pompey Remain In Administration

Portsmouth Football Club still remains in administration after the Football League did not approve the transfer of their "golden share" to the club.

This was decided at today's Football League meeting after Pompey were informed that four further requirements have to be satisfied before the club can come out of administration.

Pompey intend to discuss these requirements, whatever they may be, with the Football League in the near future.

So, just as things were starting to get a little more positive, this bombshell gets dropped on the club and there is more bad news as Inter Milan haven't paid Pompey the €1 million they were due to be paid for Sulley Muntari.

The English and Italian Football Associations are in discussions but they're deadlocked and it's reported that the sum that Inter owe Pompey was to be used to pay the players' wages for the month, so they may have to be deferred.

To complete the bad news, Pompey have missed out on Kyle Naughton as he has joined Leicester on loan. Steve Cotterill is now looking at Bernard Mendy as an alternative.
