Liverpool's Pennant set for more Portsmouth talks today

Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant is due for more talks with Portsmouth today.

Pennant had initially rejected overtures from Portsmouth manager Tony Adams but he has since been told by Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez that he does not figure in his plans and he will be unlikely to play again this season.

He wants to keep his options open in the summer and Portsmouth's proposal would still allow him to do that while playing in the Premier League, says the Daily Mail. The 26-year-old is then likely to take stock of the offers on the table as a free agent.

Adams said: "If Jermaine does not want to come, I will not take him on board. People have to come and want to play."
