Pompey Lose Striker Huseklepp

Pompey's Norwegian striker Erik Huseklepp has signed for Championship rivals Birmingham City on loan.

The loan deal will last until the end of the season but will be extended in the event of Birmingham reaching the play-offs. 

Huseklepp, 27, was signed by former Pompey boss Steve Cotterill on a three-year deal in August. He came from Italian club Bari after spending less than a year there, in which time they were relegated amid financial problems. 

An international with 26 senior appearances to his name, he made his Pompey debut as a late substitute in a 0-0 draw at Bristol City, catching the eye immediately. 

But it was several weeks later that he really took off in the eyes of Blues fans, scoring a superb and dramatic injury-time winner against Blackpool after letting fly with a volley that flew past the keeper into the top corner. 

Huseklepp's sixth goal for the Blues came in a 1-1 draw at Blackpool earlier this month.
