Portsmouth have confirmed the loan signing of striker Quincy Owusu-Abeyie.
Abeyie, a forward at Spartak Moscow, signed a six-month loan deal with the South Coast side yesterday. However, Pompey have stated that the deal is not yet concluded.
The 23-year-old Dutchman is well known in England for his youth days at Premier League side Arsenal. Since signing for Spartak in 2006, Abeyie has enjoyed loan spells at Celta Vigo, Birmingham and Cardiff.
However, if manager Avram Grant is hoping for Abeyie to fire Portsmouth to safety, he may have to look elsewhere.
Statistics suggest he has scored less than 10 goals in more than 70 career appearances.
Abeyie becomes Grant’s first signing since taking over as manager.
