Portsmouth midfielder Bjorn Helge Riise has revealed he is hopeful of extending his stay at the club past his loan deal, with the Fulham star enjoying his time at the club so far this season.

Riise moved to Pompey from Fulham in the transfer window, and has featured for the side twice now, showing great potential.

And the 28-year-old is ready to play his heart out for the Portsmouth badge, and if Steve Coterill likes him enough, he might stay a little longer.


"Hopefully I can play my part while I'm here,” Riise told the official Portsmouth website.

"I want to do as well as possible during my time at Pompey and help the club climb the table. I want to play as many games as I can while I'm here. The only way I'm going to do that is by offering something on the pitch.

"If I can do that then hopefully I can stay at Pompey for longer, because I'm enjoying my time here."

Portsmouth are currently 19th on the Npower Championship table, with nine points from 10 matches. The south coast club are looking to get their season back on track this weekend when they face 16th placed Barnsley at home.
