Portsmouth have completed the signing of veteran midfielder Michael Brown from Wigan for a nominal fee.

The 32-year-old was in the final year of his contract at the DW Stadium but has fallen down the pecking order under new manager Roberto Martinez.

Wigan on Friday afternoon confirmed Brown had returned to the club he spent a loan spell with back in 1999, while under contract at Manchester City.

Brown has signed a two-year deal at Fratton Park with the option of a third year.

"Michael's a player who has shown he can perform at this level," Pompey manager Paul Hart told

"He's very combative and someone who I've admired for many years.

"When he was playing at Sheffield United and I was at Nottingham Forest he was a player you didn't want to come up against.

"He'll add plenty of steel to our side."
