Harry Redknapp says Pompey won't be selling any more key players - but insists there are still one or two in the squad he would let go to raise cash for new arrivals.

It comes as speculation continues over whether Pompey will make any more forays into the transfer market before the window closes at the end of August.

Pompey have already parted company with Pedro Mendes and Sulley Muntari, but have held on to Niko Kranjcar, Lassana Diarra and John Utaka despite rumoured interest from clubs at home and abroad.

There is still room for the squad to be trimmed, though, with Sean Davis and David Nugent apparently at the top of the list of players who would be sold if the right deal came along.

Redknapp told The News: 'I am not letting any more go that I want to keep, definitely not. There are one or two players I would like to sell, the only problem is they don't want to go, which is the frustrating thing.

'Hopefully if I can ship some of them out I can bring some more money in. There's still time before the transfer window ends. But I won't let ones I want to keep go, I can't keep doing that can I?

'If you keep on selling your best players you will be struggling and we need a strong squad for Europe this season. There are players I want to keep, there are players I want to go. The best ones will be staying now, for sure.

'We've lost two key midfielders in Sulley and Pedro, I don't want any more to go, not at all. There may be more sales but it won't be anyone I want to keep.'

Meanwhile, Niko Kranjcar is out of Monday's clash with Manchester United with an ankle knock picked up while on international duty. It could open the door for Arsenal loan signing Armand Traore to come straight into the side on the left of midfield.

Glen Little, Richard Hughes and Davis are all fit, though, while Linvoy Primus expects to play for the reserves against Fulham on Monday week as he battles back to full fitness.

Pompey still had on Friday a handful of tickets left for the clash with Manchester United - but have denied talk sales have been slow for the game. Only personal callers to the ticket office will be able to buy on Saturday.
