Portsmouth sign striker Nugent

11 July 2007 16:39

PORTSMOUTH, England (AFP) - Premiership side Portsmouth completed Wednesday the signing of England striker David Nugent.

The 22-year-old has joined from Championship club Preston North End for a fee reported to be 6 million pounds.

Nugent who won his first England cap as a goalscoring substitute in the European Championship qualifier against Andorra in Barcelona, has become manager Harry Redknapp's sixth signing of the pre-season.

He could help solve the forward shortage at Fratton Park, where his signing will be formally announced at a news conference later Wednesday.

"I am delighted to get him and I'll be even more delighted if he can get into double figures with his goals for us this season," Redknapp told Sky Sports on Tuesday.

"The days of strikers scoring 40-odd goals in a season like Clive Allen are long gone and so we are putting no pressure on David but every time I have seen him play he has done well.

"I think it gives a sign of how far we've come. We've signed Sylvain Distin, Hermann Hreidarsson, (Sulley) Muntari and now Nugent this summer. We are full of quality."

South coast club Portsmouth finished ninth in the Premiership last season, just missing out on qualification for the UEFA Cup.
