Pompey woe escalates

UDINESE are to take Portsmouth to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Switzerland, for failing to pay instalments on Sulley Muntari's transfer from the Serie A club for £7m in May 2007.
The Italian team are believed to be owed about £4m and could ask CAS to rule that the whole amount must be paid.
Doubts over Pompey's claims to have rescheduled transfer debt on foreign signings -- specifically Muntari -- are understood to have persuaded the Premier League not to lift its transfer embargo on Wednesday and the wisdom of the call became clear within hours.
