Matt Tubbs has joined Eastleigh on loan until the end of the season.

The Blues striker had been the subject of intense interest from the non-league club during the transfer window.

However, with the opening of today’s emergency loan window, a deal has now been struck to allow the 31-year-old to move to Silverlake Stadium.

Tubbs has scored five goals in 17 appearances this season for the Blues, but hasn’t featured since the end of October.

The ex-Bournemouth man is contracted to Fratton Park until the summer of 2017.
