Portsmouth have completed the signing of Nigerian striker John Utaka.
Utaka shows off his new colours after two years with Rennes
Utaka scored 10 goals in 35 appearances in the French League last season for Rennes and moves to the south coast in a four-year deal for a reported £7m.
The 25-year-old Nigerian international said: "I have dreamed of playing in the English Premier League and this is a great opportunity.
"I spoke to Kanu, who was my national team captain, and he told me it was a great place to come."
Utaka was unveiled alongside England striker David Nugent.
Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp said: "John has got the frigthening attribute of pace.
"I'm delighted with the pair of them, they will give us an awful lot up front.
"We're bringing in people who are ready to play and it will make us stronger."
Utaka admitted he had other options before signing for Pompey.
He said: "Manchester United and Newcastle were trying to sign me.
"But Harry made the effort to come over to Rennes to watch me and I had to respect that."
Utaka has spent two seasons at Rennes, having previously played for Lens.
