Portsmouth have snapped up Charlton Athletic winger Jerome Thomas on a season-long loan.

Pompey's chief executive Peter Storrie told the club's official website: "Jerome's a young player that Harry has always liked - a quick, wide player who is a good addition to the squad.

"The idea is that he comes here and proves himself. If he plays to the ability we all know he has then he has a great chance of staying here longer, so it's in his hands.

"Harry has been looking to add a quick, wide player, something that's important when you've got someone like (Peter) Crouch up front."
