Pompey won't rush into player sales

Published Add your comment

Portsmouth administrator Andrew Andronikou insists the club will not rush into selling players despite being given permission to do so by the Premier League.

Pompey appealed to the Premier League last month to be allowed to sell players outside the transfer window in a bid to ease their financial troubles but that was rejected. However, following a board meeting last week where Portsmouth's nine-point penalty for going into administration was confirmed, the Premier League have decided to grant them permission to make sales in certain circumstances.

"This has effectively given us an option if we need it but at this moment I want to emphasise we're not necessarily going to sell players," Andronikou told Sky Sports News.

"At the moment we don't necessarily need (the money from sales). We're in a semi-final, which we're looking forward to, and that's obviously given us working capital to play with.

"And I've always said we've had means within the club. So it's a window that's open to us. I've got to respect the business end of the football club is playing football. Avram's got a semi-final to play for and hopefully a final to work towards and I don't want to interfere with that."
