Saydee: I'm Buzzing To Join Blues

Striker delighted at Pompey switch

15 June 2023

Christian Saydee had a two-game cameo in Pompey’s attack during last summer’s pre-season schedule.

While on trial under former boss Danny Cowley, the forward appeared in friendlies held on consecutive days at Havant & Waterlooville and Gosport.

That did not turn into a lengthier stay, however, as he was instead loaned to Shrewsbury by Bournemouth.

But now Saydee has agreed to join the Blues in a permanent deal and is looking forward to getting started.

The 21-year-old said: “I’ve been wanting to come here for a while now, so I’m really happy. I’m buzzing.

“I first heard there was some interest a couple of months ago and then I spoke to the gaffer and he made me feel comfortable.

"I want to help the team as much as possible, get as many games and wins as possible to fight for promotion."

“When I came here last summer everyone was really nice and now I can’t wait to get among the group and start training again.

“But I enjoyed it a lot at Shrewsbury. I learnt that I have to remain professional and how much I just enjoy playing football.

“I like playing with my back to goal, running in behind and getting on the ball. I also like to assist and score goals.

“I want to help the team as much as possible, get as many games and wins as possible to fight for promotion.”

Saydee arrived on the same day as defender Conor Shaughnessy, who he previously played with during another loan spell.

He explained. “That will make it a lot easier. He helped me when we were at Burton together and we spoke quite a bit. I’m buzzing he’s also here.”
