Former Pompey striker Azar Karadas has backed Norwegian striker Erik Huseklepp to be a hit in England.

The Bari striker is mulling over a move to Pompey, although the deal is still some way from being complete, but if it comes off Karadas reckons Pompey would have a good player on their hands.

'I'd predict that Erik is thinking that he can either help take a team to back to the Premier League, or he can prove himself, so bigger clubs snap him up,' he told the Norwegian press.


Karadas spent a season on loan from Benfica at Fratton Park in 2005-2006 and his views are shared by former Saint Claus Lundekvam, now a TV pundit in Norway.

'To play in the Championship series will be a good thing for Erik. It is difficult to get the chance to play in the Premier League, and I think the greatest opportunity to get there is through the Championship. 

'If he performs over a whole season, he can play in the Premier League the following year,' he said.

Lundekvam is also convinced playing in the Championship is a step up from Serie B, where bari will play next season after their relegation.

Huseklepp made his name at Brann, before securing a move to Italy in 2010. He is also a regular in the Norway international set up.

He has attracted interest from notably Celtic in the past few months, but the Scottish club haven't been able to tie up a deal for him.
