Portsmouth complete signing of Tottenham defender

Portsmouth have signed former Tottenham defender Ricardo Rocha on a free transfer. "It's very good for me to be back," he told Pompey's official website.

"It will be good to be able to show everybody what I can do, and I want to prove it to myself and to the people of Portsmouth.

"But the most important thing is to help get Portsmouth away from the bottom."

And the 31 year old has vowed to do everything in his power to help keep Avram Grant's side in the top flight this season.

"I know from our position in the league that we are struggling a little bit now, but I know that everybody is doing their best to get out of this situation and I'm here to help the team to achieve that goal."
