Pompey have captured their second striker of the transfer window, with the signing of Adda Djeziri from Danish side Frem.

The 19 year old is another ‘one for the future’ and signs after a successful trial – but again is not going to help us out in the immediate future, nor will Danijel Subotik as Joe Jordan once again confirmed to The News: ‘we have brought a couple of young lads in this week. But they are too young and for the future, they are not really going to figure in the first team for a good while yet’.

Djeziri has previously spent time with Rangers and Leicester and also had a trial with Blackburn last season.

Subotik – although not believed to be being considered for the 1st team at the moment – has told the Pompey Site that he is ‘here to play and wants to play as soon as he can’, saying: ‘It was great to play for the reserves the other night – absolutely awesome.

‘Hopefully I will soon get the chance to play for the first team. I’m here to play and I want to play as quickly as possible.

‘I want to progress here and become a better player. I want to take my chance.

‘I should get better the more and more games I play’.

Good positive thinking from Subotik, and if he is good enough as the old saying goes he is old enough – I am not so sure that Harry Redknapp will think the same way though…

A striker that could be of use to us now – although it remains to be seen if he has the quality needed to play in the English game – is Cho Jae-Jin, who has also joined us on a trial basis.

Newcastle pulled out of a deal to sign him previously – which worries me slightly! – and it is being reported that Fulham and West Ham are both interested.

If the Korean international impresses Harry Redknapp would sign on a free transfer, as he is a free agent after his contract with Japanese club Shimizu S-Pulse expired recently.
