Pompey have signed Steve Seddon on loan from Birmingham until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old left-back has made four Championship appearances for his parent club this term and signed a new contract last summer.
He also played the full 90 minutes when they were beaten at Fratton Park in the first round of the Carabao Cup back in August.
Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “He strengthens our left-sided options, which is an area we’ve been lacking.

“That’s been compounded by the injuries to Lee and Brandon, and Steve is a good attacking player who will give us balance in that part of the pitch.”
Seddon turned professional at Birmingham in the summer of 2016 and spent the majority of last season out on loan at Stevenage and AFC Wimbledon.
He made a total of 43 appearances for those two clubs and also chipped in with six goals, helping the Dons retain their League One status.
