Portsmouth have welcomed Steve Cotterill as new manager.

The 45-year-old has signed a three-year deal at the cash-strapped south coast club, who are rebuilding after suffering relegation from the Barclays Premier League last season.

Cotterill took charge of Notts County earlier this year and led the Magpies to the League Two title before leaving Meadow Lane at the end of the season.

Pompey chief executive David Lampitt welcomed the arrival of Cotterill, saying: "Steve is the perfect fit for the rebuilding job we want to do here.

"He's talented, ambitious, energetic and positive, with a very good footballing CV, coming here on the back of a great achievement at Notts County.

"We've got lots of challenges ahead and like the rest of us here at the club Steve is ready to tackle them head on to bring stability and long-term success to Pompey."
