The south coast saga that is Portsmouth FC took yet another twist today with the announcement that the Premier League has given the cash-strapped club permission to sell its players. A number of Pompey's stars could be sold in the coming days to help raise funds after the club went into administration last month. So, roll up, get your wallets out and take your pick - Portsmouth's players are in the shop window, ready to be bought at (a cut down) price. But remember, they can't play for their prospective buyers until next season. Pompey in pink: James has been linked with a move away from Fratton Park David James The veteran keeper has been linked with a move away from Fratton Park for over a year now. He looked set to move to Stoke in January only for the move to hit the skids over the fee. Value: £1m Clubs interested: Tottenham, Blackburn Stoke target? Utaka is set to leave Pompey John Utaka Utaka was Portsmouth's record signing when he joined from Rennes in July 2007 for £7m but recent rumours that he earned £80k-a week were quashed. The Nigerian, who has scored just three goals this season, has made it clear that he would like a move away from Fratton Park. Value: £4-5m Clubs interested: Celtic, Stoke, Sochaux Tommy Smith The former Watford and Sunderland striker scored his first goal for Pompey in their 3-2 win against Hull City at the weekend but that is unlikely to stop him from moving away after an unsuccessful spell on the south coast. Value: £1m Clubs interested: Derby, QPR, Reading Nadir Belhadj Up for sale: Pompey defender Nadir Belhadj Portsmouth's left-back has been a decent performer this season and has been linked with a move to a number of clubs. Pompey will want to recoup at the very least the £3m they paid Lens for his services in January 2008. Value: £3-£3.5m Clubs interested: Tottenham, Celtic, RomaKevin-Prince Boateng The former Tottenham midfielder, 23, has attracted interest from several clubs, despite an ankle injury which has kept him out of the side since February. Boateng has already played for two clubs this season after featuring for Spurs in the Carling Cup back in August.
