Portsmouth have been given special permission by the Premier League to sell players outside of the transfer window to ease their financial crisis.

Pompey, who had nine points deducted for going into administration, can sell stars on condition they cannot play for their new club before next season.

The south-coast club have debts of about £60m and have laid off 81 staff in an attempt to cut their costs.

Pompey are bottom of the Premier League and virtually certain to be relegated.

More to follow.

Yeah, you can sign them now, but they aren't allowed to play for you until the EPL season has finished.

Get Kanu signed :wink:

That's only the rule if they sell to Premier League clubs I'm sure?

So they want teams to buy their players and pay their wages but cannot play them till next season? seems pretty stupid if thats the case

they shouldn't have been given special permission, they got themselves into this trouble, wonder what the odds are for them to be relegated from the championship next season

It is stupid :lol:

The only way they could get rid of anyone is if a rich club buys a player from pompey on the cheap then sells him on at a profit in the summer :lol:

But if you have 6 teamsn looking at one player, you're going to get him cheaper than the going rate then paying his wages for a few months to save on a million or more, and beating 5 other clubs who also want him, seems like good business.

Even if hes not on a free this summer he is one alot of clubs will be looking at.
