Fans’ favourite Erik Huseklepp will today join Birmingham on loan for the rest of the season.

Pompey are moving their top goalscorer off the books in a bid to slash their wage bill.

The Norwegian international was informed of the move yesterday by then-chief executive David Lampitt.

The News understands the developments came as a shock to Huseklepp, who had not asked to leave Fratton Park.

He is now travelling to the midlands for training with his new team-mates.

The deal will be for three months, taking Huseklepp until the season’s end, with a view to a permanent switch.
