Portsmouth to land Chelsea's Wright-Phillips for £11M

Portsmouth are set to land Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips.

The Daily Mail says Wright-Phillips will become Portsmouth's latest England capture when he returns from Chelsea's pre-season trip to the Far East and Russia, with Harry Redknapp hoping to sign him for around £11million.

Little more than a week since breaking the club record transfer with the £11m signing of Peter Crouch to play alongside Jermain Defoe, Redknapp will spend again with the support of chairman Sacha Gaydamak.

Portsmouth were last night concluding the sale of midfielder Sulley Muntari to Inter Milan for £12.7m and will immediately use the cash to land Wright-Phillips, a long-term transfer target for Redknapp.

"Shaun is thrilled at this chance," said a friend last night. "He wants to work with Harry and get himself back to his best form, flying down the wing again."
