Steve Cotterill believes Portsmouth fans will be excited by the players that are on the verge of joining the club.

Cotterill needs the takeover of the club to be completed before he can officially unveil two players, who are committed to moves to Fratton Park.

The Pompey boss refused to name the pair but insists supporters with be delighted with their signatures.

"I have two on hold at the moment. They are the only two I can put on hold," he told The News.

"Others require a little bit more work. Even if they cost money, I would want to sign them. Definitely. They are good players who can come into our team and the fans will be happy with them.

"Most of all, they are free transfers, which is fantastic for us. If I could sign all the players I have lined up I would be delighted - and so would the fans."
