Tony Adams has pulled off quite a transfer coup to make Ghanaian ‘wonderkid’ Torric Jibril his first signing as Pompey manager.

The 17-year-old midfielder has signed a 3-year contract and as he told The Sun he is out to impress: ‘I’m sure very soon I will be one of the best players in England.

‘God willing I will live up to my potential because with all these facilities here in England I will not disappoint.

‘Where I have come from we don’t have all of these. So the sky is the limit.’

It is a done deal as the fella has been pictured holding a Pompey shirt with no.10 Torric on the back.

We have beaten off competition from two of Europe’s finest in Arsenal and Real Madrid to sign Torric, so with these sides in the running for him alone means he cannot be bad, beating them to his signature is even better and will hopefully be quite a feather in the cap of Adams.

Will Adams have the nerve to give the youngster a run-out this season or is he another for the future? If he is good enough he is old enough as the old saying goes…
