Lauren has declared he'll be part of the Portsmouth fire sale in January.

Pompey boss Tony Adams this week sanctioned the sale of Lassana Diarra to Real Madrid for a reported £20million and defender Lauren has told Spanish newspaper AS that last year's FA Cup-winning team is being "dismantled".

He expects Jermain Defoe and Glen Johnson to link up with Redknapp again at White Hart Lane.

Lauren said: "Not only is it Diarra, there is Defoe, who could return to Tottenham, to whom Glen Johnson is also going to go. The economic situation is very bad, we are already aware of this.

"Me as well. In January. It's Turkey or Greece."
