Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has bolstered his attack by signing David Nugent and John Utaka on four-year contracts for undisclosed fees.

Nugent, 22, had been tipped to leave Preston after they failed to win promotion to the Premier League last season and was linked with a move to Sunderland and Everton before choosing Pompey.

Utaka has been signed from French club Rennes and the Nigeria international can operate as a striker or a winger.
