Tal Ben Haim's future hangs in the balance after Portsmouth manager Steve Cotterill said that he is unsure whether or not he will return to the club next month.

Ben Haim has been on loan at West Ham since August and the Hammers must decide if they want the Israeli defender to extend his loan or take up the option of making the move permanent

Cotterill needs to reduce wage bill at the club relegated from the Premiership last season. He said: "For sure, I would want him here. Anyone would be a good addition to our squad at this moment in time.

"He's somebody who can play in a few positions, which is not bad for us."
