Liam Cooper has rejected a loan switch to Pompey.

Michael Appleton had been given the all-clear by Hull boss Steve Bruce to recruit the central defender but Cooper did not want to go.

‘I cannot see that happening now,’ said Appleton, who then sarcastically remarked: ‘I am not sure of the attraction of Portsmouth being on the south coast.

‘He’s a northern lad and I don’t think he quite likes the thought of uprooting.’
