The left-back arrives on loan from Birmingham to ease Pompey's current left-back crisis.

With Lee Brown (Achilles) and Brandon Haunstrup (knee) both out injured, Kenny Jackett swiftly moved to secure Seddon on the second day of the January transfer window.

The 22-year-old has made just five appearances at St Andrew’s this campaign.

-Decent player and quality. Would love to have kept him for another season. One for the future for sure.

-He was utter quality last season when we signed him on loan mate - would take him back in a instant.

-His goals from left back were priceless.

Steve Larham

good young player who plays lb. He likes to get forward. He's rated highly at Brum, some fans think he should be in the squad/starting. Potentially better then Brown

Michael Critchett

All we need now is a creative midfielder....P.U.P.…

Gary Cullimore

Terrible signing, he’s only played 4 games all season. It’s going to take him a few weeks for Pompey to get up to speed.

Peter Civil

Every player deserves a chance good luck at our club #pup

Steve Seddon becomes the first signing of the window for #Pompey. Judging by the majority of comments from Birmingham fans, it seems we may have some player on our hands. Time will tell! It’s also refreshing to see Pompey start their business early. Long may it continue..
