Pompey have completed the loan signing of Ross McCrorie from Rangers.
The midfielder has joined the Blues for the whole 2019-20 season, subject to international clearance, and becomes Kenny Jackett’s sixth new arrival this summer.
The Blues saw off stiff competition from rivals Sunderland for the highly-rated 21-year-old, who made 30 appearances for Steven Gerrard’s side last season.
McCrorie is a Scotland under-21 international, who has made 54 appearances on total for the Ibrox outfit.
He will be part of the Pompey squad that flies out to Dublin on Sunday for a six-day training camp in Ireland.
