CRISIS club Portsmouth are going to have to sell another one of their high profile players as the future of the club slips further into jeopardy.

In a desperate bid to relieve pressure on the financial disaster the club is encountering, �80 million-worth of players have left Fratton Park in as little time as a year.

The likes of Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch and Glen Johnson have all departed, leaving Portsmouth short of a few star players.

David James appears to be the next man on the hit-list with Tottenham rumoured to be interested in the England international goalkeeper.
