Free Agent


Pompey have signed defender Paul Downing on a three-year deal.


The 27-year-old – who spent time on loan at Doncaster last term- will officially become a Blues player on July 1 when his Blackburn contract expires.

Downing started his career with West Brom, but failed to make a senior appearance and moved to Walsall in 2012.

He made almost 200 appearances during four years with the Saddlers, then had a stint with MK Dons before, in the summer of 2017, signing for Blackburn.

The centre-back was part of the Rovers side that won League One promotion in 2017/18 and played 22 times while on loan with Doncaster in the second half of last season.
