Pompey have completed the signing of Matt Tubbs on a two-and-a-half year deal.

The in-demand 30-year-old this morning met his new team-mates and is now in the reckoning for Saturday’s trip to Newport County.

Andy Awford faced stiff competition for the services of the 15-goal striker following a prolific loan spell with AFC Wimbledon.

But the Blues were always at the front of the queue and remained confident throughout of pulling off a deal for Mudeford-based Tubbs.
