Storrie: Portsmouth should be allowed to sell players now

Portsmouth should be allowed to sell their players immediately, insists chief executive Peter Storrie.

Pompey have asked the Premier League, who in turn have made a request to world's governing body FIFA, to allow them to sell players in a bid to ease their crippling debts.

There are now contrasting reports as to the outcome of their request, with some suggesting that they will be allowed to cash in on some of their stars.

Pompey handed over a statement of their financial affairs to the High Court this week as this continue to try and fend off a winding up order lodged by Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs.

But the club have numerous other debts to pay and chief executive Storrie admits that being allowed to sell players could save them.

"Of course we don't want to sell any more players, but we have no choice," said Storrie.

"Avram Grant still believes he can keep us up, so he doesn't want to sell any more players.

"But if it's a question of survival or selling, there clearly is no choice. We have some immediate cash flow issues to resolve."
