Harry denies exit rumours

22 August 2007 09:17
Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp has dismissed fresh rumours linking Gary O'Neil and Matthew Taylor with moves away from Fratton Park. Midfielder O'Neil has been mentioned as a makeweight in a possible return to Pompey by Middlesbrough striker Yakubu, while Spurs continue to be linked with left-back Taylor. However, Redknapp says both players are key members of his Fratton Park squad and is in no mood to sanction any exits. He told The News: "I saw something in the paper which said I'd offered money and Gary for Yakubu. They were talking about £10million-plus. "I don't know where that came from. I've never offered Gary O'Neil to anybody. It's nonsense. "The same goes for Matty Taylor. They are two lads who are here and I want to keep two of my best players."
