Harry Redknapp has told Pompey Pages that he wants to use Tony Adams to inspire his side next year.
Pompey’s boss said: ‘As far as Tony goes, I think everything’s more or less agreed as far as I know.
‘Tony was a fantastic player and a great captain. I’m sure he’ll have a lot to offer as a coach.
‘I’ve always liked him. I think he can bring a lot to the club.
‘That’s why I’ve given him a chance to become involved.’
Tony Adams joining the club could also play a big part in persuading Sol Campbell to join from Adam`s old club Arsenal.
