Portsmouth have re-signed goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown on a two-year deal after he left the club last season.

The 29-year-old, who appeared 52 times in his first spell at the club, returned on Friday after David James moved to Bristol City in July.

Ashdown told the club website: "There was always the chance that Jamo (David James) would go because there were a few clubs interested in him.

"So it was always in the back of my mind that I could come back."

He added: "I had a few other options but I've enjoyed my time at Pompey and it's great to be back here.

"It's never easy in the Championship whoever you are but hopefully we'll be able to add a few more players and we can go from there."
