Ryan Taylor: Signs 18-month deal with Portsmouth

Taylor, 25, has signed an 18-month deal with Pompey after he was released by Bristol City.

He told the club website: "I'm very happy to be here and I just want to start playing some games now.

"I've been sat on the bench at Bristol City and asked the manager if I could leave. He said yes and when I heard that Pompey were interested it was an easy decision.

"It's a club with a massive fanbase and I can't wait to show the supporters just what I can do."

Jervis is back at Fratton Park, subject to international clearance, having had a brief spell on loan with Pompey last term.

The 22-year-old striker was a free agent after leaving Turkish side Elazigspor and has signed a contract until the end of the season.

He said: "I'm delighted to sign at last. I can't wait to get out onto the pitch and start playing for Pompey again."

Former Reading full-back Shorey, 32, has also signed a deal until the end of the current campaign.

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time.

It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
