Portsmouth Agree Muntari Fee – Agent

English side Portsmouth have agreed terms with Udinese to buy Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari, according to the player's agent.

According to Stefano Antonelli the Italian club have agreed to transfer the highly-rated Muntari, who can play on the left or in the middle, and that only personal terms need concluding.

"Udinese has already finished negotiating with the English club Portsmouth and with my help he will go to them," Antonelli told Viola News.

"The only thing remaining is the conclusion of some personal details between the player and Portsmouth, we will meet soon and there should be no problems." Muntari has been linked with a move to England for some time, particularly after impressing in the World Cup last summer, although the mooted transfers to Manchester United and Arsenal failed to materialise.

Portsmouth then entered the fray after their purchase by French millionaire Alexandre Gaydamak, and speculation intensified after boss Harry Redknapp was spotted at Ghana's 4-1 friendly win over Nigeria in London in February, in which Muntari scored.

Antonelli also denied reports that his client was also in discussions with Serie A rivals Fiorentina.

"I do not understand why people insist that Fiorentina want Muntari because I have absolutely, never spoken to (Fiorentina sporting director Pantaelo) Corvino," he declared.

"I know Pantaelo and can assure you that, if he intended to buy him, he would have asked me."
