Steve Coppell has hinted that Pompey may find it hard to keep Glen Little free of the injury problems which disrupted his time at the Madejski Stadium.

The Reading boss - sore at losing a player he had hoped to keep - said Little had suffered Achilles problems for more than a year.

His comments came as Liverpool told Pompey they wouldn't sell Peter Crouch for the £9m the Blues are reportedly willing to pay and as talk increased that teenage Chelsea striker Ben Sahar could be on his way to Fratton on loan.

Coppell feels winger Little - who signed for Pompey on a free last week - owes something to the Madejski club for the way they nursed him back to fitness.

'I am disappointed, although I can understand why Glen has taken that decision,' Coppell told Reading's official website.

'After the [Achilles] injury problems he’s had for the last 15 months I thought he would stick with us – it’s almost as though he had unfinished business here. We had agreed a deal with Glen but he has opted to stay in The Premier League, and now he faces the challenge of staying fit and getting into their team.'

Meanwhile, Dutch club NEC Nijmegen say Israeli striker Sahar is poised to join Pompey.

The international had spells on loan at QPR and Sheffield Wednesday last season and had looked poised to move to Holland.

A statement on NEC's website said the player was now on his way to Fratton.

Sahar has made just five substitute's appearances for Chelsea and will hope to catch the eye of new manager Luis Felipe Scolari if he gets his chance at Pompey.
