Portsmouth complete Piquionne capture

Portsmouth have completed the signing of Lyon forward Frederic Piquionne on a season-long loan deal. The 30-year old - who has been capped once by France - joins the Fratton Park outfit having made just 19 league appearances for the Ligue 1 club since arriving from Monaco last summer. The 6ft 2in front-man, who can also operate on the wing, has previously spent his entire playing career in France with Nimes, Rennes, Saint-Etienne, Monaco and Lyon. Portsmouth have the option to make Piquionne's stay on the south coast a permanent one, should he shine for Paul Hart's side in 2009/10. PORTSMOUTH FANS!
