Portsmouth have confirmed the season-long loan signing of Rasmus Nicolaisen from FC Midtjylland via their official website.
With the summer transfer window currently open, manager Kenny Jackett has thus far made four signings, with Cameron Pring, Callum Johnson, Sean Raggett and Michael Jacobs all coming in at Fratton Park.
A poor start to the new League One season for Pompey has seen them fail to find the back of the net, being held to consecutive 0-0 draws by Shrewsbury Town and Rochdale.
Jackett has now another defender in the name of Nicolaisen in enhancing his squad for the remainder of the League One campaign.
The 23-year-old originally began his career at FC Midtjylland, winning the Danish Cup in 2019 and the Danish Superliga last season (as per Transfermarkt).
The deal is subject to international clearance and Jackett has given his thoughts on the signing of the Dane.
“We’ve been working hard to bring in a left-footed centre-back and felt it was the right time to branch out into the European market.
“Rasmus is someone who’s been on our radar for quite a while now and joins us from a very good club.
“He was very keen to come to England and so we’re delighted to be able to sign him on loan. I’m sure it will be a positive partnership for him and us.”
After another defensive addition to Portsmouth’s squad, some fans might be wondering when some attacking players may arrive.
Two clean sheets in the opening two League One games is good, but a failure to score must be addressed at the risk of Pompey missing out on promotion yet again.
Pompey fans, do you think Nicolaisen will be given a large amount of playing time this season? Let us know your views in the comments section below…
