Portsmouth have boosted their striking ranks with the capture of free agent Danny Webber after he impressed during a trial at Fratton Park.

The 27-year-old left Sheffield United in the summer and has now penned a two-year contract with Pompey, who sit bottom of the Barclays Premier League without a point and having scored only one goal in four games.

Manager Paul Hart told "When I found out Danny was available I asked him to come down and train with us - and I was delighted with what I saw."

He added: "He plays off the shoulder of defenders and gives us another attacking option.

"I wanted to sign him when I was at Nottingham Forest but he went to Watford. He's another one who's hungry with something to prove."

Webber is Hart's latest recruit following the completion of Sulaiman Al Fahim's takeover last month.

Jamie O'Hara, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Mike Williamson, Tal Ben-Haim, Aruna Dindane and Hassan Yebda all arrived at Fratton Park in the closing days of the transfer window.

Webber has been training with Manchester United this summer, with whom he began his career, following his release by the Blades.

He joined Watford in 2003 before moving to Sheffield two years later. He scored 23 goals in 114 league appearances for United but was not given a new contract by manager Kevin Blackwell.
