Redknapp has walked out on Southampton having said he wants permission to talk to Pompey, however reports on the official site says there are other names in contention!

Also in the frame are Northern Ireland manager Lawrie Sanchez and former Republic of Ireland boss Brian Kerr.

Milan Mandaric said: ‘These are another two names on our list who we will talk to and see what they have to say and offer. We are leaving no stone unturned in our look for the right man and these are another line of enquiry in that quest.In line with my previous statement there is nothing more to say about this at present and we are just keeping the public informed of our options.’

Redknapp says he realises ‘If they can’t do a deal with Portsmouth then I’m left in limbo and I will have to accept that.’
