And now Boateng signs!

And now Boateng signs!

The Pompey Site has confirmed that Pompey have completed another signing with Kevin-Prince Boateng arriving from Spurs.

The midfielder has signed a 3-year contract for an undisclosed amount - 'said' to be around £4m - which has left Paul Hart 'thrilled': 'Kevin's a good player and I'm very thrilled that we've managed to get him here.

'He's a young player who wants to prove something. Like all the players we've brought in, he's got something to prove.

'He's got tremendous ability and hopefully we can provide the environment to channel that.'

Welcome aboard Kevin, in all honesty I am not sure what to think as I have not seen enough of you to judge that much. Now is your chance to prove yourself, as I am sure you will get plenty of opportunity to shine this season.

Now fulfil that early promise...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Amid all this comings Marlon Pack has joined Wycombe Wanderers on a months loan.

Im so excited about this guy! Soo much promise, but never had a chance to do anything! Spuds had many players in same position better than him, and never got a real string of games. Much better than basinas and mullins, so should get a good go, and prove that he is actually quaity, and can develop as a player under us!

I've rated KPB but thought he didn't get a fair opportunity at the Lane. He's had three managers since his arrival and two didn't want him there. However Sevilla wanted him while Ramos was still their manager. He has the ability to the be an outstanding box-to-box midfielder and now he will be able to play weekly we may just see that. Alongside Papa Bouba Diop he could help shore up the midfield especially if Mokoena is played as a defensive midfielder; however that means Hart will have to change the formation a little. Well done Pompey. There is hop for you yet.

pompeym@ - he's a bit of both. Box to box midfielder, bit of a tank. I seem remember he kung-fu kicked somebody last season whilst playing for Dortmund.

I reckon 'Arry has done you lot a favour here, not that you'll remember the good things he's done for you (FA Cup) next time we meet. Hope the lad does well, he deserves a good chance.

KPB is a quality player, but he will need time to settle. technically he is very good and is well up for a battle, if anything a little to well up for it. if he can calm down and concentrate on playing football, he will be a fantastic signing for you.

Yeah he did us a massive favour by leaving us when he found out there was no money at the club. If the same happens at spurs don't expect him to hang around for too long.

He never really had a chance at Spurs and was a little arrogant when he first arrived. He came with the accolade of being Young Player of the Year in the Bundesliga, so reckoned he'd cracked it. The PL proved a different proposition though and he soon found he didn't have so much time on the ball. For all that, I think he's a decent player and if he's made to feel welcome I reckon you might have yourselves a bit of a gem. With O'Hara coming on loan, I reckon Harry's doing his bit to help you guys out. Good luck in the coming months, hopefully these guys will assist.

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!

Will pair stay at Fratton?

It's been made (more than once) clear by Catlin Pompey want Davies & Hollands to stay. Both (also more than once) have said they want to this - deals have to be right for all concerned.
