Portsmouth won't go spending mad - Storrie

Portsmouth chairman Peter Storrie insists they're not missing out on big-money signings due to the length of time it is taking for Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim to go through club's books.

Storrie told The News: "Al Fahim wants to get the deal done as quickly as possible. We all do.

"He's a nice guy who wants so much for the club and I know will do a lot for it - the fans can be assured of that. But he is not going to spend, spend, spend immediately on players. We are not in a rush.

"We are not going to splash out £40, 50, 60m this summer, that's not how Al Fahim wants to do things. Instead, he wants to spend money over the next couple of years.

"It's not just the playing side which interests him, he is very much interested in the academy, in the study centre, in the community office, every aspect of the club. He loves the club and has been very impressed with everything he has seen at Fratton Park.

"But he wants to be involved in improving everything, not just the playing side of things. It is going to take time, he is in this for the long haul, believe me."
