Pompey fans wait to see if there will be any more new owners this week

Former Portsmouth striker, Jermain Defoe, who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur, has this morning been transferred back to Fratton Park due to 'a clerical error'.

Defoe, currently readying himself for England's World Cup campaign in South Africa, has scored 22 goals for Spurs this season, and has been instrumental in leading them to fifth spot in the Premier League.

Portsmouth, meanwhile, have plummetted of late, and last week called in a team of administrators to run the club after it was threatened with expulsion from the league for failing to fulfill its debts.

One of the Fratton Park administrators, Tracy Smith, 19, a typist, appeared to have found it all too much for her though, and, after pressing the wrong key on her computer, inadvertently recalled Defoe from White Hart Lane, and the player will now line up against Birmingham City in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Tottenham office secretary, Barbara Glitch, said:

"We understand they are busy down there, but this is just typical!"

The administrators at Portsmouth have their work cut out for them what with the club's debt rising at a rate of £1.5m-per-week, and they have been particularly overworked this week with a Nigerian agent who is 'owed money'.

Phil Hall, spokesman for Pompey owner, Balram Chainrai, said:

"It's all a bit up in the air at the moment, and not surprising that a mistake like this has been made. We might try to offload some of our crappy Africans in the same way!"
