Edu and Manuel Fernandes are believed to be two of Pompey’s top midfield targets – and Joey Barton is on the radar too.

Boss Tony Adams has told Sacha Gaydamak and Peter Storrie he wants to sign five players – in line with the chiefs’ statement that the Blues could buy three and loan two players this month.

Bristol City have said Blues midfield target Marivn Elliott is not for sale but it seems midfield is where Adams is turning his attentions first.

‘My squad needs five players so I can play different systems,’ Adams said.

Asked about Barton, he said: ‘I think Joey is a great man, but he plays for Newcastle. I give people second chances. People in glass houses and all that.

‘We've had 39 people through the Sporting Chance clinic who are sober and clean. I know that Joey has been there.’

Meanwhile, the postponement of Pompey’s clash with Manchester City saw them slip to 14th in an increasingly-tight bottom half of the table.

Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Stoke all drew – and Spurs play at Wigan on Sunday afternoon with Jermain Defoe set for his second Tottenham debut.
