Expected return for Ben-Haim
Portsmouth manager Steve Cotterill is expecting experienced defender Tal Ben-Haim to return to the club after his loan with West Ham. The Israel defender's Pompey career appeared to be over last season after he was frozen out over a pay dispute following his loan spell, but Cotterill hopes a resolution can be reached and wants to include the 29-year-old in his plans for next season. "As it stands at the moment, I am expecting Tal back in here," Cotterill told the News. "If he is here this time I will be selecting him. I think his unavailability before was more dominated by the previous ownership."
