Blues swoop for Fulham defender
Pompey have signed defender Josh Passley on a one-month youth loan from Fulham.
The 20-year-old can play at right-back or in the centre and will wear the number 18 shirt during his time at Fratton Park.
Blues boss Andy Awford said: “He’s an athletic and very lively player who will improve our squad.
“The coaching staff and I have been to watch Josh on a few occasions this season and we liked what we saw.
“He’s already played at this level before and we’re grateful to Fulham – and Kit Symons in particular – for letting us borrow him.”
Passley has progressed through the ranks at Craven Cottage and appeared in two FA Cup fixtures for the Londoners.
He moved to Shrewsbury on loan in November, helping the League Two side keep five clean sheets in his seven appearances.
