Pompey have made their first signing of the summer with Blackburn's South Africa international Aaron Mokoena agreeing a three year deal once his current one expires at Ewood Park in June.

The 28-year-old defensive midfielder signed for Rovers in 2005 and had been a regular until this season.

And it is the lure of first team football in World Cup year which decided Mokoena to leave.

"It is going to be a good challenge for me going down to Portsmouth and we'll see how it goes,' he told the Rovers official site.

"The good thing for me is that I have three years with Pompey and I'll be going there to do my job, as I did my job in Blackburn."

Mokoena had made it clear in March he wouldn't be re-signing for Rovers and he almost left the club in January for Sheffield United, but was persuaded to stay.

A combative midfielder, he collects his fair share of yellow and red cards, but with a World Cup looming and the player in his prime, he may well turn out to be a decent-enough signing.
