Would O'Neil Want A Return To Fratton Park?

But what can Portsmouth give O'Neil that Middlesbrough cannot?

The south coast side have been "iffy" at best, since Harry Redknapp did a runner, and many believe Adams isn't cut out to be a Premiership boss.

Adams: "I have all that (Diarra) money - and more.

"I had money anyway. They are going to do exactly what they did for Harry to me. It's exactly the same.

"I've got players in mind and that's been the case since I came into the job. I think you've got to get it right. Harry was fantastic at it and hopefully I've learned a little bit off the master.

"I will be trying to do some business but if it's not right I won't do it.

"My job now is to go and get the reinforcements and get the recruitment right and add to the squad."
