Avram Grant: ‘I'm not resigning’

    EXCLUSIVE: Avram Grant has moved to deny reports that he is about to quit Portsmouth over the imminent sale of Asmir Begovic and Younes Kaboul to Spurs. When contacted, he simply said: “I have not resigned.”

    A source in Israel who is very close to the Portsmouth boss told the JC: “I spoke to Avram last night and he has no intention of resigning. He is certainly not angry.

    “He understands that several players have to be sold but he is also bringing in three or four players before the transfer window closes.

    “He is confident that he still has a squad, which is strong enough to stay in the Premier League.”

    This contradicts the statements made by Portsmouth CEO Peter Storrie who yesterday said that he and Grant are considering resigning. Storrie told the Daily Mirror, "In many ways our (Avram and I) position at the club has become untenable. It makes you wonder what we are doing here at the moment."

    Meanwhile, Portsmouth's financial situation has gone from bad to worse. The players are unlikely to receive their salaries on time for the fourth consecutive month, and yesterday, Pompey's official website went off the air temporarily, reportedly due to the non-payment of its operator.

    Kaboul and Begovic look set to be sold to meet this month's £1.2 million wage bill. Portsmouth face a winding up petition from Revenue and Customs on February 10.
