It is no longer 'rumour', 'speculation' or the dreaded 'sky sports understands'; it is now 100% official.
Jason Pearce has returned to Pompey.
A 3-year contract, for an undisclosed amount, has seen the 23-year-old come back to Fratton today.
Steve Cotterill has already praised the defender on The Pompey Site and Pearce is more than happy to be back: 'when the opportunity arose to come back to Pompey I was delighted. I was here as a young lad but didn't get the opportunity to play first-team football - that's why I left for Bournemouth.
'I trained under Harry Redknapp and met some nice people - I've got some great memories of my first time here.
'But now I've shown what I can do and hopefully I can continue to do that back at Pompey.'
With the Pompey interest there was no other club for him. He also says that Cotterill has sold him a good vision for the future and he is 'buzzing': 'the manager's a really good guy. I'm sure I'll get to know him a bit better over the pre-season. His plans and ambitions for the club sound really good.
'Now I can't wait to get out there on the pitch and play with all the lads - I'm buzzing.
'It'll be amazing to play at a packed Fratton Park - something I've dreamed of. The fans are amazing here and still get behind you even when you're not doing so well.'
Welcome back to PFC Jason. I look forward to seeing what you can do as I suspect he has been signed to be part of the starting 11 and is not merely 'making up the numbers'.
A pairing with Rocha John Rocha is one I can see working well.
So, 100% confirmed signing no.1 is here - of course 'Chuck' Norris will officially come in next week too.
The wheels are in motion, lets hope they keep turning eh...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
