Pompey sign Routledge & Koroman

Portsmouth have completed a double swoop to sign Tottenham winger Wayne Routledge and Serbia & Montenegro midfielder Ognijen Koroman on loan.

Routledge, 21, and Koroman, 27, have joined until the end of the season.

Routledge joined Spurs from Crystal Palace for an undisclosed fee in July but has made only two Premiership starts this season.

Koroman has spent his career playing in the top-flight in Russia and joins Pompey from Terek Groznyi.

Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp has now made eight signings during the current transfer window.

Former Tottenham team-mates Pedro Mendes, Sean Davis and Noe Pamarot all signed permanent contracts in a triple deal on 12 January to be worth 7m.

Benjamin Mwaruwari was brought in for a club record 4.1m while Emmanuel Olisadebe was signed from Panathinaikos and goalkeeper Dean Kiely arrived from Charlton.

Redknapp told Pompey's official website: "Wayne has an awful lot of ability and is still at an age where there is a lot of room for him to become a really great player.

"We are crying out for a wide man and to get someone in the mould of Wayne is tremendous because he will really give us the width we have been missing.

Koroman added: "I am very happy to be here and it is a honour for me to be in a team where Dejan Stefanovic is captain.

"I was a kid when he was a key player in the Red Star Belgrade team and so it will be a dream come true to line up in the same side with him."
