Published Add your comment

Portsmouth have signed Bjorn Helge Riise on loan from Fulham.

The 28-year-old Norway midfielder has agreed an initial switch until November 7 and should go straight into Steve Cotterill's squad for Tuesday night's visit of Peterborough.

"He's a central midfielder who can also play on the right side," Cotterill told Pompey's official website.

"He's energetic, a good footballer and has played 31 times for his country.

"He played on loan for Sheffield United against us last season and did very well.

"We've got several midweek games and we may need to shuffle the pack so he will help us out."
