Pompey move to strengthen weak squad

Portsmouth are on the verge of adding to their thin squad with the signing of Norwegian international winger Erik Huseklepp.Huseklepp, 26, is set to sign a three-and-a-half year deal at Fratton park in a deal that will cost the club an estimated £1.5 million.The player spent last season in the Italian Serie A with Bari, where he made 14 appearences, scoring two times in the process.The move will provide Pompey fans with more reason for optimism, with boss Steve Cotterill appearing to be backed by the new owners in spending money on the squad.
"All is not yet set but the clubs have agreed (a transfer) and I will make it over to England for a medical test within a short while," The winger told Bergens Tidende.
Speaking of his new club, Huseklepp added: "The club is in a rebuilding phase and that is something I want to be part of. In the long run the club wants to get back to the Premier League and that is of course exciting."
