Portsmouth have beaten Real Madrid for Ghana whizkid Torric Jibril.

New boss Tony Adams fought off Arsenal and Real Madrid interest to land the Ghana midfielder on a three-year contract, says The Sun.

Jibril, 17, said: "I'm sure very soon I will be one of the best players in England.

"God willing I will live up to my potential because with all these facilities here in England I will not disappoint.

"Where I have come from we don't have all of these. So the sky is the limit."
