Man City offer £8M for Portsmouth's Diarra

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes has made an £8 million bid for Portsmouth midfielder Lassana Diarra.

The News of the World says Diarra's reputation has soared since Harry Redknapp prised him from Arsenal during the January transfer window in a £5m deal.

The player made a huge impact and played a leading role in Pompey's FA Cup success.

Pompey are likely to reject the bid holding out for in excess of £10m - especially as Redknapp is well aware that Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is also an admirer.
