Deslandes said: 'It's a great move for me and I'm delighted to be here. It's a chance to play regularly and that's what I need.

'For a young player it's a good chance to play because it's not good enough to just train. At some point you need to start playing games and that's what I need.

'I'm thankful for that chance and will give everything for Portsmouth.'
