Former Manchester United striker Danny Webber is set to sign a two-year-deal at Fratton Park, after impressing manager Paul Hart while on trial.
Webber, 27, has been a free agent since being released by Sheffield United at the end of the season. He has been training with Portsmouth for the past week.
Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Middlesbrough were also said to be interested in snapping up his signature.
Yet Hart has pounced on the opportunity to sign Webber, adding much-needed firepower to Portsmouth’s miss-scoring front-line.
During his time at Bramall Lane, Webber made more than 80 appearances notching 26 goals along the way.
Many fans have been cynical in their views of this proposed transfer, stating it would be a huge step backwards for the club.
Some even see it as a sign we’re already preparing for ‘life in the Championship’.
My view would be this – give Webber a chance, and as something similar Harry would say, you don’t play for Manchester United if you don’t have something about you.
He could be a good addition to the squad and may even notch a few goals in along the way; optimistic I know, but we Pompey fans have to be nowadays.
With Webber’s arrival imminent, it would seem Henri Camara’s proposed move to Pompey is off, at least for the time being.
Webber, he can’t be worse than Nugent…
