Mvuemba signs permanent Pompey deal

Mvuemba signs permanent Pompey deal

Pompey has today completed the transfer of Arnold Mvuemba from Rennes for an undisclosed amount, believed to be around £2million.

The 22-year old has signed a 3-year contract after a successful loan spell with Pompey last season, having arrived in January 2007.

We might not have a lot of the former French U21 international but whenever I saw him he looked very impressive and in my thinking is the final piece of the midfield jigsaw we have been looking to complete.

People might question the signing of another midfielder when we need strikers but I think this was always a move that was destined to happen at some point this summer - just agreeing a fee and terms was all that was needed, with this now happening.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Some regular football, a bit of extra confidence, should see a good player in the team. Makes places on the bench a lot more interesting.

so with all these new midfielders, what will our first team look like? will it be - o'neil, mendes, muntari, taylor, if so, where will kranjcar and mvumba, huges, and davis fit in? they cant all be content with just playing as subs. or will we go for squad rotation?

i think we will see alot more rotation in midfield next season to keep players fresh - but hopefully not for the sake of it as you also need a fairly settled side dont you... were looking amazingly strong in defence and midfield now aren't we just need nugent to agree to what we have offered him then another would follow then who knows what next season could bring...

I think we may see a few move on. Great for competition, excellent bench cover for injuries, suspensions etc. keeping them all happy...

Well done to arnold, well deserved. Im really pleased about this one, he looks good and has added something different to the game when he has come on. Do i mean an attacking edge :-) . Budgets do have to be balanced so i guess it means we may be losing Davis and Hughes

Come on down Arnold, and welcome to Pompey full time, all we ask is give it your best shot, be proud of the shirt and only kiss the badge if you mean it. We will get behind you and cheer the team on in every game, just make sure you want to play for us. Another good youngster arrives, get Nugent and 1 other striker and we will be ready for the new season
