Portsmouth have reached a settlement with Israel international defender Tal Ben Haim over his unpaid wages.[LNB] Ben Haim was frozen out at Fratton Park last season following a loan spell at West Ham, claiming Pompey owed him £1.4million.[LNB]His case was set to go to a Football League hearing this month but Pompey have instead come to an agreement with Ben Haim - meaning boss Steve Cotterill can now pick the 29-year-old again.[LNB]Ben Haim appeared as a substitute in Monday night's 4-0 friendly win over Havant & Waterlooville and will now fly out to America with the rest of the squad on Sunday for their pre-season training camp.[LNB]Cotterill told The News: "At this moment in time, Tal is going to be available to play. He will also be going to America.[LNB]"I think an agreement has been struck over monies that Tal has been owed. That's another important deal the (new) owners have sorted out. Hopefully now we have got a good player."
