Portsmouth administrator says Grant will stay

Portsmouth's administrator Andrew Andronikou has confirmed manager Avram Grant will stay to the end of the season.

The club have gone into administration with debts of £70million and Andronikou, an insolvency practitioner from UHY Hacker Young, now has the job of assessing the extent of the damage along with colleague Peter Kubik.

He believes it will be necessary to sell "one or two" players, although the club would need special dispensation to do this outside of a transfer window.

As for the manager's position, he revealed: "I've spoken to him briefly, he has given his full support to stay till the end of the season.

"It would be very naive of me to start looking for a new manager."
