Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie has revealed that Benjani Mwaruwari´s transfer to Manchester City failed to take place on transfer deadline day because the player fell asleep when he was supposed to be catching an aeroplane to the north-west.

The protracted deal, which City claimed had fallen through just after the January window closed at midnight last Thursday, was finally completed on Tuesday after the Zimbabwe international signed a two-and-a-half-year deal.

"In his own inevitable, wonderful way - and we all love Benji so much - he falls asleep at the airport and misses two planes," Storrie said in The Times.
