Dindane: My focus is on Pompey

Reports have suggested Dindane was looking to quit Portsmouth after

the cash-strapped club defaulted over the payment concerning his

loan deal to Lens. It has been claimed Lens are demanding

£3.5million from Portsmouth or the striker will quit Fratton

Park – and that the Ivory Coast international and the Ligue 1 club

will approach FIFA and the Premier League to sanction a move to

another club in England despite the transfer window being closed,

citing exceptional circumstances. However Dindane, who came close

to joining two Premier League clubs before the close of the

transfer window, insists he plans to see out his loan deal at

Fratton Park before leaving Lens for good in the summer. “Lens

blocked two moves to Premier League sides in January and as far as

I am concerned I will be staying on loan at Portsmouth until the

end of the season ,after which I will be buying out the last year

of my contract at Lens so I can move to any club I choose in the

summer,” Dindane told skysports.com. “Problems between Lens and

Portsmouth are no concern of mine. “My focus is on Portsmouth and

helping them get as many points as possible to help them stay in

the Premier League.”
