Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp insists winger John Utaka is a big part of his plans.

He told the club's website: "John is a player with such fantastic talent.

"He's got everything. He's so quick and has such amazing skill. He's got strength.

"I think last year was a big learning process for him in the Premier League, the same as it was for Niko Kranjcar the season before.

"So I think this season we'll see John Utaka become a fantastic player in the Premier League."
