‘Best deal for all parties’ – Plenty of Portsmouth fans react as transfer agreement is sealed

Published

Fleetwood Town have secured the permanent signing of striker Ellis Harrison from League One rivals Portsmouth, it has been confirmed this afternoon.

The 27-year-old had started just once for Danny Cowley’s men in the third tier this season, finding himself behind the likes of John Marquis, Leicester City loanee George Hirst and now Ronan Curtis, with the south-coast side opting to play two up top.

There was a glimmer of hope for the Welshman when he scored a hat-trick in the EFL Trophy against AFC Wimbledon at the start of September, but that wasn’t enough for him to receive a sufficient amount of game time on the pitch and he now moves on permanently as he makes the long journey up to Lancashire.

Quiz: Can you name which club Portsmouth signed these 28 midfielders from?

Lassana Diarra?

Despite Harrison’s lack of game time recently, Portsmouth have managed to generate a fee for his services which could help Cowley in his quest to bring players in as the 43-year-old looks to sustain his side’s promotion push.

For Harrison, he will be hoping to revive his career in League One after enduring underwhelming spells at both Ipswich Town and Pompey in recent years – and will now be tasked with keeping Stephen Crainey’s side afloat in the division after a tough first half of their campaign.

But focusing more on the selling side, how did Portsmouth fans react to this news? Happy to see a fringe player get a chance elsewhere? Gutted it didn’t work out after seeing him show real promise at Bristol Rovers?

We take a look at a selection of their supporters’ verdicts on Twitter.
