There was I thinking to myself ‘I wonder what is going to happen with this fella Christophe we have had on trail’, then low and behold I check the Pompey site and they have announced his permanent signing on a 2 year contract.

The 19 year old has been signed from Lens after impressing in several pre season friendlies this summer, the latest of which came as a sub against Bournemouth on Tuesday night.

My thinking, before I was aware that he had in fact signed, was that Harry Redknapp would not have kept him around so long if he was not interested, as he had featured against Havant, Eastleigh and Bournemouth, as he will probably also tonight against Newport.

Jean Francois Christophe is a tall fella, with legs longer than some people are tall and although he looks a bid gangly and awkward like a Djimi Traore he seems to posses a fair bit of talent, which the club have realised and snapped him up, although it is expected that he will be loaned out this season to gain more first team experience.
