What loan deal reveals about Pompey’s transfer policy

Steve Cotterill has confirmed Greg Halford will return to Pompey.

The 26-year-old is currently back at Wolves sitting out the final two games of a three-match ban, but the Blues boss insists he will be at Fratton Park for the rest of the season.

He said: 'For sure, Greg will be coming back.

'His loan ended the other day but Mick (McCarthy) has agreed to extend it until the end of the season.

'I don't envisage that changing. We are just not going to have him immediately.

'The sooner Greg comes back down here and is back training with the boys the better.

'That's what we want.'
