Pompey are closing in on signing Anthony Vanden Borre, but the completion of his one-year loan deal is being held up by the fact he is on international duty with Belgium.

The club are believed to have dispatched a doctor to the continent to complete the obligatory medical before he signs the deal.

Vanden Borre (21) was in Brussels on Tuesday preparing for his country's friendly match with the Czech Republique in Teplice on Wednesday night. Article continues here


Provided there are no issues with the medical, Vanden Borre will join up with his new team-mates later this week.

Vanden Borre has been in Italy for the past two season, first at Fiorentian then last season at Genoa, but he has reportedly become disillusioned with life in Italy and wants to play in England, where his best friend Voincent Kompany plays with Manchester City.

Vanden Borre remains one of Belgian football bright young talents, but he is regarded as needing toadd a bit of maturity and level-headedness to his precocious talent. deals
