David James is organising the Portsmouth players to pay the wages of up to eight training ground staff out of their own pockets after the club's administrator sacked them as part of major job cuts this week.
Earlier, James was turned down when he offered to pay the wages of the club's assistant kitman and their training-ground manager because it conflicted with the regulations of the administration procedure. However, the England goalkeeper has gone back to the club's administrator Andrew Andronikou to try to find a way that the players can help to save a group of catering staff, cleaners, kitmen and groundsmen.
The Portsmouth squad feel that it would be virtually impossible for the club to function on a day-to-day basis without the core of eight staff whom they are prepared to pay personally.
