James Keene: Returns to Sweden

The 27-year-old striker, who began his career at Fratton Park, is to return to Swedish club Elfsborg for the remainder of the season.

Keene rejoined the struggling south-coast club at the end of January and made nine appearances, scoring one goal in a 3-2 defeat by Colchester.

His final appearance came as a substitute in Saturday's 2-1 win at Crewe - Pompey's first victory in 24 matches.

Caretaker boss Guy Whittingham now has a spot to fill in his squad.

He said: "We'll think long and hard about filling that space and whether we bring in another striker or promote one of our youngsters."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
