Diop delighted with Portsmouth move

Portsmouth have snapped up Fulham midfielder Papa Bouba Diop.

Diop had been given the go-ahead to quit by Cottagers boss Lawrie Sanchez after the 29-year-old told him he wanted a new challenge.

"It's nice to be here," Senegal international Diop told the Pompey website. "It's a good move for me and a good move for the club.

"It was an easy decision to make and I am very happy."

Diop added: "Three years ago was the first time I'd come to England and I didn't understand English football very well.

"Now I understand it very well and I'm happy that I'm at Portsmouth.

"It's different to Fulham. The fans here are hot for 90 minutes."
