Pompey Won't Sign Any Old Offcasts

Steve Cotterill has hinted he has been given the nod to go ahead and bring more players to Fratton Park – but he says he only wants to bring in those who can improve the overall quality of his squad.

Pompey Could Do With More Bodies - But Boss Won't Demand Them

Steve Cotterill won’t be putting pressure on Balram Chainrai to start throwing money at the team. He has met the new owner but has yet to find out his longer-term plans for the club.
