New Portsmouth boss Tony Adams says he'll "fight" Harry Redknapp to keep hold of his players.

Tottenham manager Redknapp has declared interest in strikers Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe, while Sylvain Distin and Lassana Diarra are also in his sights.

But Adams insists: "I will fight Harry if he wants any of my top players. I'm delighted other clubs want them but it will be my job to keep them here."
