Hyland still on Redknapp radar

Published Add your comment

Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed he still hopes to sign Trinidad and Tobago midfielder Khaleem Hyland.

The 19-year-old has not been granted a work permit yet, which could scupper the deal. Hyland has not made sufficient competitive international appearances to satisfy the British authorities and remains a free agent after rejecting a new contract with San Juan Jabloteh.

Redknapp told the Portsmouth News: "We are still trying to get Hyland a work permit. He's a very good young player."

He added: "We've had him over for training and seen a lot of him to know what he's all about. I think he can be a good player here.

"It has gone on for quite a while, which is a bit frustrating. It's just about getting that work permit and then we can get him down here. We'll just have to wait and see what happens."
