Kiely ponders Pompey exit

Portsmouth goalkeeper Dean Kiely has confirmed that he is likely to seek an exit from the club in the January transfer window. The 36-year-old played a major part in Pompey's escape from relegation last term following his arrival from Charlton Athletic, but has now had to play second fiddle to David James. Kiely, who has made just one appearance this term, told Sky Sports News: "We did a miraculous job, played really, really well and got out of trouble and I find myself discarded. "That doesn't sit too well with me really, because I've always played and done the business with the clubs I've been at. "I'm concentrating on keeping myself fit and well. Physically and mentally I need to keep myself sharp, because within a week things might change." Of the prospects of a move away from Pompey in the New Year, Kiely added: "It's probably looking that way and this has really been forced upon me. "I have nothing against any other keeper. We come and we do our jobs. I just find it really, really difficult."
