Pompey have re-signed Portuguese defender Ricardo Rocha.
As first revealed by The News, the 34-year-old has joined on a one-month deal, subject to FA clearance.
Rocha returns to the club despite failing to have his Fratton Park contract renewed at the end of last season.
He made 76 appearances for the Blues after being signed by Avram Grant 2010.
He will wear the number 33 shirt and has signed in time to feature against Leyton Orient tomorrow night.
His place in Pompey’s 20-man squad was made available after Carl Dickinson returned to parent club Watford.
