Portsmouth have signed Fulham defender Josh Passley on a one-month youth loan.

The 20-year-old has made two starts for Fulham in the FA Cup, and had a seven-game loan spell at Shrewsbury earlier this season.

"He's an athletic and very lively player who will improve our squad," said Portsmouth boss Andy Awford.

"He's already played at this level before and we're grateful to Fulham, and Kit Symons in particular, for letting us borrow him."

Awford added: "The coaching staff and I have been to watch Josh on a few occasions this season and we liked what we saw."
