Burton back at Derby
Deon Burton celebrates scoring for Pompey
Burton was a scoring success at Portsmouth
Deon Burton's month on loan at Portsmouth has come to an end - with the player now back at Derby.

And it has emerged that a broken bone in his right foot has put an end to a possible permanent move.

The striker has spent the last month at the south coast club, scoring three goals.

And Pompey boss Harry Redknapp had hoped to seal a deal to keep him at Fratton Park. Park.

But the injury, sustained in the win at Grimsby but not detected until the victory over Brighton, has put paid to any permanent deal being agreed for the 25-year-old.

"Burton has gone back to Derby," said a Portsmouth spokesman.

"His loan had expired anyway and he's now got a broken bone in his foot, so he's returned to Pride Park."
