Pompey have signed winger Lloyd Isgrove on loan from Barnsley for the remainder of the season.

The 26-year-old – who has been capped once by Wales – came off the bench when the sides drew 1-1 at Oakwell last month.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “Lloyd’s a player I’ve followed for a number of years and seen in action plenty of times for Barnsley in League One.

"Lloyd’s at an age now where he’s coming into his peak and I’m sure he’ll be eager to prove himself at Pompey."

“He has got very good technique, can trouble defenders and is comfortable being used on either wing.

“Lloyd’s at an age now where he’s coming into his peak and I’m sure he’ll be eager to prove himself at Pompey.”

Isgrove turned professional at Southampton and spent most of the 2015/16 campaign on loan at Barnsley.

He played for them twice at Wembley that term, first appearing in the Football League Trophy final success over Oxford.

Isgrove then scored when they enjoyed a 3-1 play-off success over Millwall to secure promotion to the Championship.

He joined the Tykes permanently in the summer of 2016 and has made a total of 59 appearances for them.

Isgrove becomes the fourth January arrival at Fratton Park, following the permanent signings of Andy Cannon and Bryn Morris, as well as Omar Bogle’s loan switch.
