Portsmouth have made their seventh signing of the summer, adding defender Christian Burgess to their ranks. The 23-year old signs a three-year contract at the club for an undisclosed fee.
The ex-Middlesborough man only signed for Peterborough last summer, but despite making 33 appearances and notching up four goals for the club, was put up for sale by manager Dave Robertson.
"I have played against the gaffers' teams and they always play good football, I'm just looking to be a part of that" said Burgess, speaking to Pompey Player.
This makes it seven signings for Paul Cook's Portsmouth, who find themselves the bookies favourites, and with the calibre of signings they have made that comes as no surprise.
Kyle Bennett, Gary Roberts and Adam Barton have dropped down a league to join Pompey, arriving from Doncaster, Chesterfield and Coventry City respectively.
Enda Stevens has joined from premier league side Aston Villa, after failing to cut it at the top level despite seven premier league appearances to his name.
Kai Naismath has signed from fellow league two club Accrington Stanley, and finally Adam McGurk who has also decided to stay in league two despite helping his Burton Albion lift the title last campaign.
Is this finally the year for Portsmouth to bounce back from this all-time low for the club? With a manager like Paul Cook at the helm, and the looks of the players he seems to be attracting, its certainly not easy to look past them making their return to league one this season.
Can Portsmouth win the league next season?
