Portsmouth admit breaking wage cap for Stoke duo

Portsmouth administrator Andrew Andronikou admits they have already broken their self-imposed wage limit by paying new signings Dave Kitson and Liam Lawrence around £20,000 a week.

Andronikou pledged to put in place a £10,000 a week wage limit following relegation and an agreement to pay creditors at the rate of 20p in the pound owed.

But Andronikou said: "We have had to push out the boat for Kitson and Lawrence.

"Their wages are £19,000 and £20,000 but it was something we are comfortable with.

"Gone are the days when extraordinary pay packets put the club in financial trouble.''
