Griffin completes his move to Derby

Griffin completes his move to Derby

Andy Griffin looks set for an instant reunion with Pompey following his move away from the club - as he has signed for Derby, our first opponents of the 2007/08 season.

He spent much of last season on loan with Stoke and it was expected that he would sign a permanent deal with them, but the chance to stay in the top flight has swayed it in Derby's favour and he has signed a 3 year contract.

There was no way back for Griffin, who had not even been issued a squad number this season, so to play any football this season he had to go. Good luck to him and Derby though - after 11th August of course.

Griffin, who becomes the first player sold this summer - as Svetoslav Todorov was a free agent when he went to Charlton - is highly unlikely to be the last.

good luck to him at Derby, although i never could deny his commitment, i never thought he was good enough for the Prem, and it gets one more set of wages off the books.

He did have the ability to play at Right or Left back which is invaluable to a club like Derby and no-ne could doubt his determination. His major problem was his distribution particularly to his right sided midfield player. Good luck AG!!

A fair - and pleasing - result

Obviously, having been in a winning position, Saturday's 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe could well feel like two points dropped for Pompey, couldn't it?
