Pompey cool on Emmanuel-Thomas

25 July 2011 11:17
Portsmouth manager Steve Cotterill has dismissed reports of a swoop for Arsenal forward Jay Emmanuel-Thomas despite reported interest.

The Gunners have reportedly received £1million bids for the 20-year-old from Pompey, Burnley and Ipswich.

But Cotterill told The News: "We haven't put in a bid for him. There is absolutely no truth in that whatsoever.

"He's not a player who has been on our radar at all this year. I have no idea where that has come from.

"Maybe he is going somewhere else and the agent is trying to drum up interest. But there is no interest from us."
