Rasmus Nicolaisen signs for Pompey

Pompey have signed defender Rasmus Nicolaisen on a season-long loan deal from FC Midtjylland.

The move for the 23-year-old former Denmark youth international is subject to international clearance.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “We’ve been working hard to bring in a left-footed centre-back and felt it was the right time to branch out into the European market.

“Rasmus is someone who’s been on our radar for quite a while now and joins us from a very good club.

“He was very keen to come to England and so we’re delighted to be able to sign him on loan. I’m sure it will be a positive partnership for him and us.”

Nicolaisen progressed through the FC Midtjylland academy and made his debut for their first team in 2017.

He was part of the squad that lifted the top-flight title in both 2017/18 and 2019/20, as well as the Danish Cup in between.

Nicolaisen has also appeared in the Europa League and has scored six goals in 51 appearances for FC Midtjylland.

‘The Wolves’ are currently managed by Brian Priske, who featured for Pompey in the Premier League during the 2005/06 campaign.
