Harry Redknapp has made his first furrow into the transfer market, with the news that he has spent £400,000 on Cherries captain and Steve Lovell's half brother, Eddie Howe.

Howe is highly rated and is often regarded as the best defender in division two. Redknapp has been a keen admirer for a while and it is no surprise he is the latest addition to Pompey's books.

The question is, will this be it for deadline day? Talks of a move for David Ginola, certainly prove interesting as the afternoon's activity steps up a gear.
