2nd striker arrives, plus 1 on trial

2nd striker arrives, plus 1 on trial

Pompey have captured their second striker of the transfer window, with the signing of Adda Djeziri from Danish side Frem.

The 19 year old is another 'one for the future' and signs after a successful trial - but again is not going to help us out in the immediate future, nor will Danijel Subotik as Joe Jordan once again confirmed to The News: 'we have brought a couple of young lads in this week. But they are too young and for the future, they are not really going to figure in the first team for a good while yet'.

Djeziri has previously spent time with Rangers and Leicester and also had a trial with Blackburn last season.

Subotik - although not believed to be being considered for the 1st team at the moment - has told the Pompey Site that he is 'here to play and wants to play as soon as he can', saying: 'It was great to play for the reserves the other night - absolutely awesome.

'Hopefully I will soon get the chance to play for the first team. I'm here to play and I want to play as quickly as possible.

'I want to progress here and become a better player. I want to take my chance.

'I should get better the more and more games I play'.

Good positive thinking from Subotik, and if he is good enough as the old saying goes he is old enough - I am not so sure that Harry Redknapp will think the same way though...

A striker that could be of use to us now - although it remains to be seen if he has the quality needed to play in the English game - is Cho Jae-Jin, who has also joined us on a trial basis.

Newcastle pulled out of a deal to sign him previously - which worries me slightly! - and it is being reported that Fulham and West Ham are both interested.

If the Korean international impresses Harry Redknapp would sign on a free transfer, as he is a free agent after his contract with Japanese club Shimizu S-Pulse expired recently.

aparantly the korean is...not very good... young players are always good, as they tend to put more efort in, and can be quicker - but only if THEY want to be, hae a little natural ability, and harry gives them a go.

from what i can find out from people adda djeziri should be one for the the transfer list. Why have we bought his person, if her couldnt manage it at a coke league or a club as rish as rangers would not spend a mere £125K, is he really going to be the next goal scoring machine for us ??? The korean i think is purely down to commercial matters and that is a fact of football life, he attracts a lot of attention in the 2 main markets of our sponsors OKI.

and i hate that about teh game, buying someone purely on what russellm said, look at park, for united, I wouldnt have him in my team, let alone man utds, but hes there just to impress the east asian market. Why cant they set up there own good league for christ sakes.

the commercial spin off could be something that is looked at more than it should be gleamer - but thats just the way it is... i would like to think that if he is complete crap he will not be signed, but personally i still wouldnt want him signed if he wasnt an improvement on what we have, which i would doubt tbh... the djeziri signing puzzles me slightly - he has either really improved or weve slipped up here?

there can only be one or two good leauges in the world - there just arnt enough good players! his is why i am so oposed to reducing the number of foreign players in the PL - if they leave, where will they play? how will there countries do without the stars? football as an international game would fall apart, with 12-0 wins against the "lesser" nations again...although admitedly, england would do much better...

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.

Versatile former Arsenal man in on trial?

Deacon, who started out with Arsenal has been with Stevenage and Crawley with the latter releasing him at the end of last season. Cookie will 'run the rule' over him in pre-season?
