Al Fahim backers expect big-name deals for Portsmouth

Portsmouth fans can expect major signings this summer under new club owner Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim.

A source close to the prospective new Pompey powerbroker told The News: "The doctor is a successful businessman and will want to bring that professional side he has to the running of Portsmouth.

"His principal ambition with the club is delivering success. There is no doubt he will want to move quickly to do that. The doctor is a charismatic figure who does not like to hang around.

"When he has a task he likes to get on and do it.

"You have to remember this was the man who organised the Manchester City takeover, and then immediately delivered Robinho.

"It's about completing the deal now, but we would anticipate the close season being a busy time. There's a lot of work to be done to ensure Portsmouth can compete effectively over the next year."
