Adams cools Pennant interest

19 Jan 2009 - 08:00:32

Portsmouth boss Tony Adams has admitted that he may turn his attention away from Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant.

Pompey have had an offer for the unsettled former Arsenal and Birmingham City star accepted by the Reds but Pennant has said he wants to stay at Anfield.

Adams said: "If he doesn't want to come here then it's the same situation as Jermain Defoe - I won't take him on board if he doesn't want it.

"I need players working hard and scrapping and in it together."

Meanwhile, Pompey secured a hard-fought point from Sunday's 1-1 draw at Tottenham, with Adams saying of his side's performance: "I was nervous today but my team didn't let me down.

"They were resilient and battled well and we gave Spurs a really good game. Sol Campbell was exceptional on his return here and David James was outstanding.

"I'm pleased David Nugent got the goal. He's playing out of position but he's benefiting from a run of games.

"He's had four games in a row now. He works really hard and does a lot of good things for the team."
