Paul Robinson has signed an 18-month-deal with Portsmouth on his 33rd birthday after cancelling his contract with Millwall yesterday.
This is obviously good news as Paul has been the best defender in the squad this season (although some will say that's not particularly difficult) and there will be no more worries of him leaving Pompey after his successful loan spell which would mean a high likelihood of seeing Ben Chorley in the starting line-up in future games.
Robinson's permanent signing now means Andy Awford has no loanees in his squad with Marcus Bean's loan from Colchester ending on January 3rd, although he is keen to sign him on a permanent deal after an impressive spell on at Fratton Park.
In other transfer news, Matt Tubbs has cancelled his contract at AFC Bournemouth after his loan spell at AFC Wimbledon was cut short and he is now odds-on favourite to sign for Pompey before Saturday's trip to Newport with Southend manager Phil Brown claiming that it was virtually a done deal as he was interested in signing him himself.
It looks like this could be a very busy January for Andy Awford and co. as he looks to bolster his squad to attempt an assault on promotion during the second half of this season.
