The 23-year-old has also spent time at Bristol City and had a number of spells on loan at lower-league sides.

Agyemang is due to join his new team-mates today from Stevenage with the emergency loan window opening.

Racon linked up with Pompey yesterday and will sign on loan from Millwall.

And Hayes & Yeading’s Alex N’Diaye is training with the side again after a trial last week.

Whittingham was keeping his cards close to his chest on Agyemang and Akinde but spoke of the boost Racon will provide.

He also refused to rule out a move for Svetoslav Todorov, although Pompey’s squad is at is 20-man capacity.

Whittingham said: ‘We tried to do Therry before deadline day but unfortunately it couldn’t be done.

‘So we had to look to the loan sign side of things.

‘Therry can play in a number of positions and is decent on the ball, so you need to get him on it as often as you can.

‘Alex trained yesterday. He’s a decent kid who wants to work on his fitness.

‘We’re up to 20 but it doesn’t rule (Todorov) out at the moment.

‘We have scope with month-to-month loans.

‘So if something does come to mind it can still go ahead.’
