Glen Johnson signs new deal!

Glen Johnson signs new deal!

News is moving so fast at Fratton Park that I just finish one item and another breaks within thirty minutes.

It is great news for all Pompey fans that our star England full back has signed his new contract which will keep him at Fratton until 2013.

Tony Adams told the clubs official site 'It's great news that Glen's decided to sign a new contract. I'm delighted to have him here - I want him here for a long time.'

'This is a good place for him. He`s got back in the England squad since he came here. Glen`s applied himself really well. He`s always desperate to play and gets frustrated when he can't.'

'He`s been very good for this club and this club`s been very good for him.'

Pompey`s executive chairman Peter Storrie said: 'Glen was only too happy to sign a new contract and it speaks volumes about his loyalty for this club and his desire to succeed with Pompey.'

'In my opinion we have the best right-back in the country and this sends out a strong message that top-quality players want to play for this club.'

Well Pompey fans at last good news - no great news!! With Peter Storrie also promising two signing by this time next week this are definitely on the up.

It is also hoped that Johnson will be back to face City tomorrow.

have a look on the club site "message from the owner". Hats off to Sacha and Peter for finally coming out and putting an end to all the bull**** from the media AND putting things in perspective.
