Pompey have signed striker Omar Bogle on loan from Cardiff for the remainder of the season.

The 25-year-old – who spent the first half of the campaign at Birmingham – will wear the number 22 shirt during his time at Fratton Park.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “We’re very pleased to have Omar and he’s someone that we’ve followed from his early days at Grimsby.

“He’s got pace, he’s got power and a strong left-foot to score goals, so I’m looking forward to working with him.

“It strengthens an area of the pitch where we were lacking in options and he makes a good addition to our front line.”

Bogle began his career in the non-league game with Hinckley and Solihull before signing for Grimsby and netting 38 goals in 78 games.

The former England ‘C’ international then had a short stint with Wigan before Cardiff brought him to Wales in the summer of 2017.

Bogle is the third arrival at Pompey during the January transfer window, following the permanent captures of Andy Cannon and Bryn Morris.

The transfer is subject to receiving EFL and international clearance.
