Saturday, 23rd January 2021, 2:50 pm

The former Bournemouth left-back has completed his much-anticipated switch to Fratton Park, after the expiry of his short-term Shrewsbury deal.

The 34-year-old has joined until the end of the season – but isn’t eligible to feature against Hull today.

Pompey take on Grant McCann’s side in League One – an important game with vital points at the top of the table at stake.
