Maguire Joins Pompey
Pompey have signed Scotland international Chris Maguire on a one-month loan from Derby.
The 23-year-old striker - who is available to play in Saturday's Championship match at Brighton - will wear the number 22 shirt during his time at Fratton Park.
Maguire joined Derby from Aberdeen last summer and has scored two goals in eight appearances for the Rams.
His only Championship strike to date was against Pompey, when the Blues lost 3-1 at Pride Park in October.
Blues boss Michael Appleton said: "Chris is a talented lad who can play in a few different positions. He's comfortable as a striker, but also out wide in a 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 system.
"He did very well at Aberdeen, although it's become a bit stop-start for him at Derby. But I've been aware of him for about a year and know how good he is on the ball.
"And he scored against us earlier in the season before I joined the club, so our players will know all about his strengths."
Maguire won his first full Scotland cap in the Tartan Army's 2-1 Carling Nations Cup victory over Northern Ireland in February 2011.
I know nothing about the guy but beggars cannot be choosers so welcome aboard Chris.
