Portsmouth boss Tony Adams has been told he can only spend £5 MILLION this month!
Adams is negotiating with Middlesbrough over the return of midfielder Gary O’Neil, 24, who left Pompey in August 2007.
Boro want £4.75m — but still owe part of the £5m they bought him for.
And Adams has confirmed he is ready to hand Newcastle bad-boy Joey Barton a chance.
He said: “I think Joey is a great man but he plays for Newcastle.
“I give people second chances. People in glass houses and all that.”
