Transfer : Doncaster Rovers – Portsmouth
Blues bring in Doncaster striker
Pompey have signed striker Curtis Main from Doncaster for an undisclosed fee.
The 24-year-old has penned a two-year deal at Fratton Park, with the club having an option for a third year.
And he is hoping to help the Blues climb out of League Two in his first season on the south coast.
“I’m really happy and excited that it’s all been sorted and that I’m now a Pompey player,” said Main.
“I had my first training session with the lads on Saturday. I already knew a few of them and the rest have all been brilliant, so I’ve settled in effortlessly.
“I’ve come here to hopefully achieve promotion and I think that has to be the aim when you join a club like this.
“The fans know that we belong at a higher level and I think everyone agrees with that, so we’re all working in the same direction.
“I can’t wait to play in front of such large and passionate crowds at Fratton Park – that was a big draw for me signing here.”
Main started his career with Darlington, where he made his senior debut at the age of just 15.
He soon attracted the attention of Middlesbrough, spending three years with the Teesside club and making 48 Championship appearances.
Doncaster signed Main in the summer of 2014 and he scored 11 goals in 58 games for them, while also spending time on loan at Oldham last season.
