Loan : Wigan Athletic – Portsmouth


Pompey have signed striker James Vaughan on loan from Wigan for the remainder of the season.


The 30-year-old – who was capped by England up to under-21 level – will wear the number 32 shirt during his time at Fratton Park.

Vaughan progressed through the ranks at Everton and a goal against Crystal Palace in April 2005 means he still holds the record for being the youngest Premier League scorer.

He appeared for the Toffees in the 2009 FA Cup final and went on to appear for Norwich, Huddersfield, Birmingham and Bury.

A prolific spell for the latter saw him named in the League One Team of the Season and led to a move to Sunderland.

Vaughan signed for Wigan last January and helped them secure promotion to the Championship, where he has netted three times this term.
