Portsmouth boss Paul Hart admits they haven't dropped talks for Hajduk Split striker Nikola Kalinic.

Hart thought he was close to making the striker, 21, his replacement for Peter Crouch.

But the deal broke down when Pompey insisted on paying the fee over three years.

Blackburn target Kalinic is now talking to Porto about a £6.1million move.

But Hart said: "We have not given up."
