Adams wants Bergkamp at Portsmouth

Adams took over as Portsmouth manager when Harry Redknapp left for Tottenham.

Bergkamp is currently youth team coach at his former club Ajax.

Adams told the Portsmouth News: “I want my staff sorted sooner rather than later, really by the weekend.

“I’m meeting with a few people and having conversations with a couple of old friends.

“I’ve had a positive meeting with Martin (Keown). Then there’s Dennis (Bergkamp), who is taking the youth team at Ajax and is a good, good man.

“I’ve not spoken to him, but there are a few people I still need to talk to.

“It’s an important part. I’ve got some good people still at the club, which is great, but I need my people in and the sooner I can do that the better.

“Mind you, you don’t have to be an old Arsenal player.”
