Most Portsmouth fans are ecstatic with Andre Green loan signing

The winger’s arrival is causing quite a stir at Portsmouth.

In pre-season, it looked like Andre Green was set for his breakthrough season with Aston Villa. With the Midlands side unable to make sweeping transfer changes his form in the summer had fans predicting big things for him this campaign.

However, that will not be the case. The 20-year-old winger has joined League One promotion hopefuls Portsmouth on a season-long loan deal.

Aston Villa’s recruitment of Yannick Bolasie and Anwar El Ghazi left Green looking at a season in the stands and he will now be a regular under Kenny Jackett’s management at Portsmouth.

The fact Aston Villa fans are so disappointed to see him sent out, is a testament to the quality of the player Portsmouth have just brought in.

The winger is incredibly fast, good on both feet and will no doubt terrorise opposing full-backs in League One.

It is no doubt one of the transfer coups of the division this season.

Portsmouth have high hopes of a return to the Championship this season and are currently third in the table after an unbeaten five game start to the campaign. Bringing in a player of Green’s quality could be the difference for Pompey in their hunt for promotion…
