Portsmouth have joined the interest in Chelsea midfielder Claude Makelele.

L'Equipe says Pompey, along with PSG, have shown strong interest in the 34 year-old France international.

Makelele has denied holding any talks with PSG, but the French giants' chairman Alain Cayzac will not close the door on an offer.

"We still have time," Cayzac told L'Equipe.
