Udinese are optimistic Sulley Muntari´s transfer to Portsmouth will go through by the end of the week.

The Ghana midfielder travelled last week to England to agree personal terms with Pompey after both clubs had reached a deal for the 22-year-old midfielder, and the transfer is now close to completion.

"Muntari has yet to reach personal terms with Portsmouth," said Udinese general director Roberto Zanzi to PA Sport. "We are confident that the deal will be completed and expect his move to be finalised in the next coming days."
