The striker has previously headed out for loan spells at Hearts, AFC Wimbledon, Aldershot and Torquay.

Now he is in the frame for a Pompey debut against Burton Albion on Saturday.

He said: ‘The club stature is what attracted me.

‘It should not be in League Two, they have a lot of fans and it’s a good club so was an easy decision to head down this way.

‘When I heard they were interested in taking me on loan it appealed.

‘They have shown real intent by signing Matt Tubbs and I had no hesitation in agreeing to come here.’
