Ex-Saint Niemi signs for Pompey

Former Finland goalkeeper Antti Niemi has come out of retirement to join Portsmouth on a one-year contract, the Premier League club said on Friday.

The 37-year-old, who retired from football last year, joins Portsmouth on a free transfer. Niemi won 67 caps for his country and previously played for Fulham, Southampton, Rangers and Hearts.

"Antti has got vast experience and will be a welcome addition to the squad," Portsmouth manager Paul Hart said on their website.
