Connor Ronan is hoping to make an immediate impression on the south coast.
The Wolves teenager has joined Pompey on loan from Wolves – along with team-mate Sylvain Deslandes – for the remainder of the season.
He has appeared seven times for the Championship leaders this term and was part of the side that came close to shocking Manchester City in the Carabao Cup.
But now the midfielder wants a more regular run of games for the Blues to show what he is capable of.
Ronan said: “There were talks going and then my agent told me I was coming down here, which is a big move for me.
“I haven’t played much football this season, so I’m looking forward to hopefully enjoying a run of games and getting back to what I do best.
"I really like the ground because it’s an old-fashioned stadium and I can’t wait to start training with the boys and play in front of the fans here."
“I like to get on the ball as much as possible, get at players, try shots and get goals and assists.
“There have been limited opportunities at Wolves so far, so I want to get in the team here, stay there and show everyone what I can do.
“Now I’m at Pompey I need to get settled as quickly as possible, so that I can just concentrate on playing football.
“I really like the ground because it’s an old-fashioned stadium and I can’t wait to start training with the boys and play in front of the fans here.”
Ronan worked with Blues boss Kenny Jackett at Wolves and is looking forward to linking up with him again.
He said: “When you’re joining a new club then the manager is always going to play a part in that decision.
“Kenny gave me a few chances in pre-season games and training when I was younger, so it’s good to be working under him again.”
