Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp admits he needs to make new signings in January to cover for his African Nations Cup absences.

Pompey will be hit by the departures of John Utaka, Papa Bouba Diop, Sulley Muntari, Lauren and Kanu next week and Redknapp will be short on numbers.

He said: "When they go away we will have exactly 14 outfield players. There are no spares about anywhere.

"We had 20 but Linvoy Primus and Martin Cranie are both long-term injured so when four go that leaves me with just 14 and we won't be able to get through that period with just that.

"I have to get a couple from somewhere. I am looking for a couple of loans or, if we can find them, a couple of frees.

"I know where there are one or two players who would do a good job for us if we could get them."
