Rafa Benitez has revealed that Harry Kewell will be leaving the club at the end of the season and that Peter Crouch could also leave - but not for a penny less than £15 million. Portsmouth have been chasing the England international for several months.

"Crouch wants to play every week but knows he must fight it out with Fernando Torres," Benitez revealed when he spoke of Crouch. Crouch had been told that he had a future at Liverpool.

"We keep seeing Portsmouth linked with the player but we have had no offer as yet.

"A £15m price tag would not be unreasonable."

Meanwhile, the on - off transfer saga of Harry Kewell; who is expected to leave: "We have tried to come to an agreement with the player and his agent, but that has not been possible.

"Kewell will leave the club at the end of his contract."
