Ibrahima Sonko is set to make his Pompey bow in Linvoy Primus’s testimonial on Saturday after revealing his delight at making the move to Fratton.

And he could be joined in a strong Pompey team playing their last friendly before the season begins by the likes of Kanu, John Utaka and Prince Boateng.


Sonko has been speaking of his decision to come to Pompey and not, like David James, go to Bristol City.

He said: ‘Obviously I was very flattered by Steve Coppell's interest, but in the end I just followed my heart. This is a great opportunity for me at Portsmouth and I've been made to feel very welcome by Steve Cotterill and all of his team.

'It's great to be focusing on my football again. This is a very exciting time for me and I can't wait for the new season to begin. I see this as a fresh start and I want to make the most of it. I respect the interest the manager has shown in me and the good things he's said about me. And I want to reciprocate that out on the pitch.'

Sonko will show Pompey fans what he can do for the first time as Fulham – under neww boss Mark Hughes for the first time - visit Fratton for Saturday’s 3pm start in Primus’s big game. There are plenty of tickets still available.

We will have a report here on Saturday evening. deals
