Romain Padovani is the latest member of Pompey's French foreign legion after signing for the club in a two-year deal and the the player is already looking forward to playing for the club after he impressed in a trial game at the end of last season.


The 23-year-old has been playing in Monaco's reserve team with a non-professional contract this season, having failed to find a club in France after being released in the summer of 2012 by the Monte Carlo-based club.

He had trials with Laval and Nantes which came to nothing, but the player, who comes highly recommended for the way he conducts himslef, was introduced to Pompey through fellow Frenchman Yassin Moutaouakil's agent.

Padovani told Nice-Matin: 'I need to thank the club [AS Monaco] for taking me back on in the reserve side. Thanks to that I was able to keep ticking over and show what I could do. Today Portsmouth is in the fourth division, but the club is starting from scratch and it is a great project. The other thing that pleased me is they get 15,000 fans at every game.'
