It seems to be very much 'business as usual' at Fratton Park, with Peter Storrie wheeling and dealing to bring in Aruna Dindane and Jamie O'Hara on loan and Kevin Prince Boateng  for £4 million.

In a whirlwind day, which also saw Sylvain Distin complete his move to Everton and Michael Brown sign from Wigan, Pompey suddenly look like the have something approaching a squad again.

Dindane has been tipped to move since last weekend, but in the end he looks to be coming with a view to a permanent move. O' Hara is also expected to sign imminently from Spurs too on loan until January, his way to the first team blcoked by a number of high-profile signings.

Prince-Boateng (22) has flattered to deceive since moving to Spurs from Hertha Berlin and Pompey look set to pay £4 million for him, although none of the deals have been officially confirmed yet.

However, they look to have been frustrated so far in a bid to bring in some central defensive cover now that Distin has moved on. Article continues here


A bid for Sunderland's Nyron Nosworthy has been turned down, as has a bid for Watford's Mike Williamson.

That looks set to cause manager Paul Hart a few headaches as he chooses his team for Sunday's clash with Manchester City.

"I think I will have somebody (a defender) in but not for Sunday. I'm looking to bring in two at the back," he said.

"I have to bring some players in and if we get everyone we want, it will probably be more than we require.

"But given the position we've have been in, that would be a real comfort blanket to us.

"We're trying to improve the squad within a limited budget and prove we're capable of staying in the Premiership."
