Cotterill Jacks In County

You may have missed the news recently that former gaffer, Steve Cotterill has left Notts County after refusing to sign a new deal.

He had been linked with Championship side, Coventry but turned down their approach before resigning at Meadow Lane amidst rumours that Portsmouth could be ready to offer him a deal to replace Avram Grant.

Portsmouth administrator,Andrew Andronikou though told the Guardian at the end of last month after hearing about Cotterill leaving County:

'We are working through the process to find a new manager. The most I can say is that we hope to reach a decision at the end of next week. Whatever Steve's done today you can put two and two together but you won't get the right sum. I believe he might be talking to a few different clubs.'
