Portsmouth complete Berkovic deal

Last updated : 09 January 2004 By Alex Dale
Harry Redknapp will link up with the Israeli, whom he managed at West Ham previously until the controversial training ground incident with John Hartson all but ended the West Ham careers of the two players.

The move is a bonus considering Pompey's depleted midfield, with Faye, O'Neil and Sherwood among the players living in Fratton Park's medical room.

Despite attempts by Manchester City to install a no-play clause into tomorrow's game between the two sides, Berkovic is cleared to play as Portsmouth look to kick start their season.
