Muntari seeks Pompey move
Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari is hoping to seal a move from Udinese to Portsmouth. The player's agent told Journalists last week that a deal was close to being agreed between Udinese and Portsmouth. Pompey boss Harry Redknapp is a big fan of the attacking midfielder and revealed talks are ongoing between both clubs. Muntari played at Fratton Park over the weekend in a charity game and the Black Stars winger is excited about the prospect of joining Portsmouth.
"I'm just waiting for the day to join Portsmouth. I want to play here," Muntari told The News.
"To step on this ground, it's like I've started in the Premiership already.
"It's a fantastic club with class players like Pedro Mendes, Sol Campbell, David James and Kanu and a great manager in Harry Redknapp, who has been following me since last year.
"I've been supporting Portsmouth for a year, ever since they said they first wanted me, watching the games. It's been a fantastic season.
"I spoke to Harry Redknapp before the game. We shook hands and he told me to enjoy it.
"Harry Redknapp's not just a good manager, he's a good man.
"I could see that in the changing rooms from the way that he was talking to the players. It was fantastic.
