"When you play games you feel so much sharper, I've said that to so many people," he said.

"Obviously when you then get your goals your confidence goes up. I feel sharp.

"I've always said I just want to play football. Towards the end of my time at Tottenham I wasn't playing and it gets you down. You don't feel as sharp as you would like.

"I'm just delighted that I made the move to Portsmouth, it went well and we finished the season strongly. We won the FA Cup, I wasn't there but there is a buzz about the club. The club is going in the right direction and I'm delighted to make the move."
