Yebda sees no Pompey future

Midfielder Hassan Yebda has confirmed his intention to leave crisis-club Portsmouth at the end of the season.

The Algeria international is on loan at Fratton Park from Benfica but has no intention of seeking a permanent move to the south coast club.

Pompey have been beset by financial turmoil throughout a turbulent season and are currently six points adrift at the foot of the table.

Yebda has made 17 appearances for Avram Grant's side this season and the 25-year-old has revealed he would like to stay in the Premier League.

"I could have left in January but the money problems made it difficult," he said.

"I don't think I'll be staying now but I'm hoping there's a chance to stay in England."
