Storrie allays exodus fears

Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie is adamant that there will be no fire-sale at Fratton Park this month.

Storrie was quoted earlier in the week suggesting several players would have to be sold to stop the club moving into administration but he now says there will be no mass exodus.

He told Sky Sports News:"That's something (players leaving) the owner of the club will decide. Whether financing will come into the banks or through his own funds or if we have to sell one or two players then he will make that decision.

"At the same time I'd say maybe a mixture and that's something we're in discussions with and working on with the owner at the moment.

"There have been (enquiries about players). I've had one or two calls and one or two people think because of the press coverage that there's some kind of fire-sale on – that's not the case.

"If we have to sell then we'll sell them for their market price and not for what people think is a knock-down price."
