Portsmouth have completed a double swoop for Lomana LuaLua and David Unsworth.
The duo passed medicals at the club on Monday.
Striker LuaLua, 23, joins from Newcastle after spending the final four months of last season on loan at Fratton Park where he forged a successful partnership with Aiyegbeni Yakubu.
He scored four goals in 10 starts as Portsmouth secured their Premiership survival with just one defeat in their last 10 games and manager Harry Redknapp has been keen to secure his services on a permanent basis.
The move has been expected since last Friday when a deal was announced to have been agreed with both the Congolese international and Newcastle.
Unsworth arrives at the south coast from Everton and will again link up with Redknapp, who managed the defender for a season at West Ham.
Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has ruled out making a possible move for West Ham star Michael Carrick. Reports have claimed that Redknapp is lining up a 3 million bid for the classy midfielder who he had under his charge during his time at Upton Park
Redknapp is a big fan of Carrick having handed him his debut at West Ham, but he insists he will not be making a move for the player as Pompey cannot afford him
