Josh Passley is seeking to add attacking impetus down Pompey’s right flank after sealing a loan move.

The right-back today arrived on a one-month loan deal from Fulham.

He will now challenge Adam Webster for the full-back berth in Andy Awford’s side’s for the trip to Wycombe on Saturday.

Passley had played seven matches for Shrewsbury as right wing-back already this season.

And the 20-year-old is looking forward to the opportunity at Pompey.

He said: ‘It all happened very quickly, I had the call last night to come down.

‘As a right-back I like to get up and down the wing a lot.

‘I enjoyed my time at Shrewsbury and had some games there, now I want to continue at Portsmouth.

‘It’s the chance for me to play matches and show what I can do.’
