Portsmouth told to forget player sales bid

Portsmouth have seen plans to sell their players immediately dashed by the Premier League.

The Independent says the Premier League last night changed its mind over allowing Portsmouth to sell players outside the transfer window and told the debt-ridden club that they would not be permitted the special measures - despite getting the green light from Fifa.

The world governing body gave the go-ahead for Portsmouth to sell players this month in order to ease their chronic finances.

However, after they were given permission from Zurich, the Premier League decided at a board meeting yesterday that allowing Portsmouth to sell players outside the window would harm the integrity of the competition.
