Portsmouth have stated that they sold Peter Crouch to Tottenham Hotspur in order to help repay scheduled debts.

The 28-year-old returns to White Hart Lane for an undisclosed fee, thought to be £9million.

A Portsmouth club spokesman told their official site: “We are sorry to see Peter go both as a player and a person and would like to thank him for playing a key role in keeping the club in the Premier League last season.

“His sale was necessitated by the club’s commitment to repay scheduled debts while we are in a transitional period of completing the takeover.

“We will now be looking to add fresh faces to the first-team squad as soon as possible.”

  1. I hope your backers have deep pockets and lots of dosh cause Harry is doing to your club what he did to mine and overloading it with over priced over paid players.

    Give it a year and you could face the same issues Pompey are having with debts that need to be paid. Thanks for the Fa Cup but he and Sacha have crippled the club. I hope the doctor can help the club recover sooner rather than later
