Two very good signings who will do a job for Portsmouth. They are also interested in taking Di Canio and have a big name international lined up but are not naming any details yet. Could be interesting.

Former England striker Teddy Sheringham has agreed terms with Premiership newcomers Portsmouth.
Sheringham has been looking for a new club since leaving Tottenham at the end of last season.
The 37-year-old is currently abroad on holiday but the club have today announced that they expect a deal to be concluded later in the week.
Sheringham became a free agent when Spurs decided against renewing his contract this summer.
He had been linked with a return to former club Millwall but Portsmouth's interest allowed him the chance to continue in the top flight.
Sheringham joined Spurs for a second time in 2001 after a four-year spell at Manchester United, during which time he won the Champions League.
Sheringham's career began at Millwall before he moved on to Nottingham Forest and then Tottenham. He has won 51 England caps, the last of which was a substitute appearance in the World Cup quarter-final defeat by Brazil in Japan last summer.
Pompey have already signed former Liverpool midfielder Patrik Berger and defender Dejan Stefanovic from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem - and hope Sheringham and Croatian defender Boris Zivkovic join them in the near future.
A club spokesman confirmed: "We hope to have an agreement with Teddy in place soon - but can't do anything further until he returns from his holiday."
