Former Club America striker Nelson Cuevas has ruled out an imminent switch to Portsmouth even though he is currently training with the club. The 27-year-old Paraguay international is currently recovering from a serious knee injury and is thankful for the chance to step up his rehabilitation at Pompey. "I am very thankful to Portsmouth's staff, who have allowed me to recover and train here but I want to make it clear that I will only sit down with them to talk about a possible transfer once I am fully recovered," he declared to ABC Color in Paraguay. "They deserve my full respect so I cannot consider a move if I am not fit." Cuevas played for River Plate and Inter Shanghai before joining Mexican side Club America in 2004. He made 29 appearances for the club before being released at the end of last term and also scored 17 goals in 55 games after being loaned out to CF Pachuca. Cuevas represented Paraguay at both the 2002 and 2006 World Cups.
