Portsmouth want agreement for Tottenham fullback Naughton

Portsmouth boss Steve Cotterill is desperate to close a deal for Tottenham fullback Kyle Naughton.

The Pompey boss had been keen to get the former Sheffield United youngster on board before Tuesday's trip to Crystal Palace, but now admits that may not be possible.

He told the Portsmouth News: "I don't like talking about anyone else's players until potentially we get them across the line. Let's just wait and see.

"Obviously Kyle Naughton is definitely somebody we are hot on and we have spoken to him and very much he is keen to come.

"I think that perhaps Tottenham want him to sign a new contract before he comes out and if I am honest that might be the small stumbling block at the moment.

"So at the moment, I don't know if anyone will come in before Palace."
