Pompey concede Dons duo defeat
Wimbledon midfielder Jobi McAnuff
McAnuff will stay with Wimbledon
Portsmouth have admitted defeat in their bid to sign Wimbledon youngsters Joel McAnuff and Nigel Reo-Coker.

Pompey believed they were on the verge of signing the pair earlier this summer but Wimbledon's financial plight put their move in doubt.

Wimbledon's administrators were reluctant to authorise any move and now Pompey chief executive Peter Storrie has given up hope of signing the pair.

He told the club's official website: "The administrators at Wimbledon have a lock-out agreement with the prospective buyers of the club regarding the two players.

"As such there is nothing we can do."
