Harry to miss out on Pompey ace

Tottenham Hotspur

Croatian international Niko Kranjcar has dismissed reports linking him with a move to Spurs and says he wants to stay at Portsmouth.

There had been reports of a major offer, reportedly £9m, from Monaco that was turned down and now former Pompey boss Harry Redknapp is being linked with taking the midfielder up to White Hart Lane, having originally signed him.

Kranjcar though welcomed news of Sulaiman Al Fahim’s impending arrival at Fratton Park and insists he is happy to stay, despite being linked with a summer departure.

The Croatian star told the News: “I’m not going anywhere. They are always talking about me going, but why would I want to leave Portsmouth? We have a new owner.

“My ambitions are greater than just Premier League survival, but I have another year on my contract. I want to spend that year just enjoying life and playing without injuries before going off to the World Cup.”
