Pompey complete Halford capture

Pompey complete Halford capture

Having been, pretty much, paraded as a new signing - after taking part in the pre-match warm up on Saturday - Greg Halford 'seemed' destined to join Pompey on loan.

A deal was agreed with Wolves last week and all that was required was for the issues holding up the deal to be ironed out, which they now have as The Pompey Site has confirmed that he has come in on a 1-month emergency loan deal.

More information, as issued on The Pompey Site, can be seen below...

Halford Joins Pompey On Loan

Greg Halford has joined Pompey on a one-month emergency loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The right-back has made 20 appearances for the Premier League side since joining them from Sunderland in July 2009.

He has made four appearances this season - and Wolves have not lost any of those games.

Halford did not feature prominently during his time at Sunderland, spending much of his two years there on loan, first to Charlton for four months and then to Sheffield United for a season, where he scored eight times in 49 games.

Halford began his career at Colchester, where his performances in the 2004/05 season saw him named in the PFA League One Team of the Year.

He left Layer Road to after making more than 150 appearances and had a brief spell at Reading, where he featured just three times.

    whilst i am not at this time massively impressed with the signing we have to gove the bloke a chance. It is very positive in terms of the bigger picture; Pompey wouldnt have taken him if BC hadnt agreed to fund him and imo that woudn't have happened without confidence of imminent Admin exit. PLEASE

    You must be right Russ. Hopefully we can keep him for more than one month IF he proves a success.

    well on tonights performance i think once he is match fit and match sharp he could do a job; i suspect the month duration is for financial commitment reasons, i suppose it could be a short term for the Shotton but i dont see it. Ned to do something with Sonko though, too many balls passed out of play for no good reason.

    Just reading what Cotterell has to say about Halford, and I'm dead impressed. He can play rightback (which Cotterell bought him for), he is apparently equally good as a left sided centre half. His throw ins are "Delapesque" and Cotterell is very pleased with his "outstanding debut". Cotterell says if he carries on the way he started, then he will ask Mick McCarthy to extend the loan.
