Portsmouth have admitted that Premier League rivals Derby are pursuing a bid to sign striker David Nugent - just a few weeks after his £6 million arrival at Fratton Park.

But Pompey manager Harry Redknapp is poised to restore Nugent to the side in Carling Cup action at home to Leeds on Tuesday - and says he does not want to sell him.

He said: "Derby do want to sign Nugent. They would like him. But he´s only just joined us and I´m happy to keep him here."
