Knight, 18, was born in England but has spent almost all of his life living in Spain.

A host of Spanish clubs are chasing him but Whittingham has managed to bring the CD Alcoyano youth player across to Fratton Park.

Knight will spend a week with the Blues.

As for Goulon, the 25-year-old has three France under-21 caps to his name and is currently without a club.

He made four Premier League appearances for Blackburn and also spent five matches on loan at Doncaster in the 2011-12 campaign.

A defensive midfielder, Middlesbrough recruited him in 2006 from Lyon, but he never made an appearance and was released two years later.

Goulon is expected to spend a few days on trial.

Michael Bryan and Ryan Bird are currently attempting to win deals with Pompey.

Meanwhile, winger Danny Wishart from Hayes & Yeading is the latest name to be added to Wednesday’s triallist game at Aldershot.
