On January 9, 2004, Eyal Berkovic became the highest paid player in Pompey’s history.

The attacking midfielder moved to Fratton Park from Manchester City on a free transfer, signing a two-and-a-half-year deal.

He was reportedly on £25,000 a week.

The Israeli international stayed only a year, though.

He scored three goals in 28 appearances before returning to the country of his birth in January 2005 with Maccabi Tel-Aviv.
