Despite admitting they were both considering departing Portsmouth, chief executive Peter Storrie and manager Avram Grant have decided to stay and fight relegation. The duo were incensed by the owner’s decision sideline them in negotiations to sell influential players Younes Kaboul, Asmir Begovic, Aruna Didane and Mike Williamson.

"We have spoken about it," Storrie told Soccernet. "We are both angry, frustrated and fed up, but neither of us are quitters. I don’t intend to quit now. I’ve slept on it, and although I cannot speak for Avram, from what we have talked about this morning I don’t think he will quit either. And, let’s face it, we both have good reason to walk out!

Although Storrie and Grant have agreed to stay, the gloom at Fratton Park has hardly been lifted with the club continuing to remain at the bottom of the league table and in financial crisis.
