The Finnish defender joined in the winter transfer gap and had a solid loan spell, making fifteen apperances and looking solid without really consoldiating himself into the starting eleven.

Harry Redknapp has admitted he is interested in bring him back permanently, but added: "He's done a good job, and we'll speak to his agent to see what the situation is. But he could be a bit expensive."

Meanwhile, Tim Sherwood, who was one of the players released by Portsmouth, may be offered a pay-as-you-play contract for next term.

The 35-year old has not played since breaking his leg against Tottenham Hotspur in December.
