Fernandes close to Pompey debut

Fernandes could become the club's record signing
Portsmouth hope to have Manuel Fernandes fit in time for the home game against Bolton on 25 September.

The 20-year-old midfielder has a groin injury which twice blocked a permanent move to the Fratton Park club.

Fernandes was eventually signed on loan from Benfica with a view to a club record 7m move.

Pompey physio Gary Sadler said: "Hopefully, without any setbacks, he will be involved with the first team by the end of the month."

Meanwhile, Portsmouth right-back Glen Johnson has returned to Chelsea - but only for treatment to his injured ankle.

He is also aiming to be fit for the home game against Bolton.
