Niemi comes out of retirement with Pompey

Portsmouth have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Antti Niemi with the 37-year-old coming out of retirement to join the Premier League club.

Former Finland international Niemi left Fulham in September 2008 and had announced he was calling time on his career, which included spells at Rangers, Hearts and Southampton.

Pompey boss Paul Hart, who earlier this week signed French striker Frederic Piquionne on loan from Lyon, believes the experienced stopper, set to provide cover for England number one David James, still has plenty to offer.

"Antti has got vast experience and will be a welcome addition to the squad,'' Hart told the club's official website.

"Our goalkeeping coach David Coles worked with him in the past and told me all about his character and his quality.

"He has a massive appetite to succeed and he relishes a challenge.

"It provides David James with some good competition and also allows Asmir Begovic to go out on loan, while Jamie Ashdown needs first-team football as well.''
