Portsmouth could end interest in Real's Saviola

Struggling Portsmouth could end their interest in Real Madrid striker Javier Saviola as they look for a player to produce an instant impact at Fratton Park in the run-in.

The south coast club continues to slip closer to the relegation zone and are in need of a spark to turn their season around.

Argentina international Saviola has been on manager Tony Adams' wanted list throughout the transfer window but with the forward not having played a La Liga match since November there are doubts over his match fitness.

Portsmouth executive chairman Peter Storrie has revealed the club are still actively persuing the 27-year-old but need to weigh up the alternatives.

"'Obviously it's no secret we have been talking to the Madrid boy Saviola and that's one we have been seriously looking at," he said. "The problem is we need someone to come in that's going to play in the team straight away.

"He's not played any football since November and you are talking about the Premier League, you need people that are regularly playing games and at the fitness level.

"But that's an option we are still looking at."

A move for Valencia midfielder Sunny also appears to be at an end. Storrie told Portsmouth News: "We have talked to Sunny, we had a look at him yesterday [Wednesday] and we've had a look at his fitness levels.

"It's way down because, unfortunately, he's not played many games so it's quite a way down from our existing midfield players."
