Pompey sign a striker...

Pompey sign a striker...

...sadly I cannot see him making much of an impact - if any - this season... Sorry, I hope that I did not get your hopes up fellas?

Danijel Subotic has become our first signing of the transfer window, arriving form Swiss club Basel for an undisclosed compensation fee.

The highly rated 18-year-old striker has signed a 3 and a half year contact after impressing during a recent trial.

Harry Redknapp has told the Pompey Site that he is 'one for the future': 'he was recommended to us so we brought him over for a few days' training and he did well.

'We've taken a gamble on him and hopefully he's one for the future.

'We'll just have to see how he goes'.

If he played at all this season, let alone in the next I would be surprised to be honest fellas so although it is good for us to have made our first signing, and again for us to be looking to the future he will not really help us much at the moment will he...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

is he good? yes - for an 18 year old. will he play this season? - depends on if benjani or nugent gets injuured (god forbid!). Is he a good signing? I dont see why not, it shows that pompey will have one of the best sides comeing through in a couple of years time - we are putting he money in!

I see Bolton have turned down Chelsea's offer for Anelka. Come on Sasha ask your dad for an advance!

right done a bit of research - turns out that in the first 2 games for the swiss u19s that i could find, he was a substitute (a 2-1 defeat to hungary, and a 1-1 draw with wales)...he isnt EVEN a starting or an u19 side...

The squad number he had for the first game against Hungary was 2. Strange for a striker.
