Reports in Belgium suggest Pompey are signing Belgium international defender Anthony Vande Borre on a year-long loan.

The 21-year-old is currently with Serie A side Genoa, having moved there from Fiorentina last summer. He started his career at Anderlecht.

Vanden Borre was jointly owned by Fiorentina and Genoa initially before he joined Genoa definitively in the summer of 2008. He can play at either right back or right midfield. He has played 29 times for the Belgian national team, most recently in February.

He was born in the Congo and rose to prominence in 2004 as the second youngest-ever debutant for the Belgain national side. Article continues here


Vanden Borre was thought to be close to joining Spanish side Real Zaragoza earlier this month, and Siena were also interested.

Like with Frederic Piquionne, Pompey are thought to have negotiated a try-before-you-buy deal, having the option of signing the player permanently.
