Portsmouth have signed Tottenham winger Wayne Routledge and Serbia & Monenegro midfielder Ognijen Koroman on loan until the end of the season.

Routledge, 21, and Koroman, 27, have joined until the end of the season.

Redknapp told Pompey’s official website: “Wayne has an awful lot of ability and is still at an age where there is a lot of room for him to become a really great player.

“We are crying out for a wide man and to get someone in the mould of Wayne is tremendous because he will really give us the width we have been missing.

Koroman added: “I am very happy to be here and it is a honour for me to be in a team where Dejan Stefanovic is captain.

“I was a kid when he was a key player in the Red Star Belgrade team and so it will be a dream come true to line up in the same side with him.”

Routledge has made only two Premiership starts this season following his move from Crystal Palace in the summer.

Koroman joins the struggling club from Russian outfit Terek Groznyi.

The duo take the number of Portsmouth signings to eight since the transfer window opened on January 1.

Former Tottenham team-mates Pedro Mendes, Sean Davis and Noe Pamarot all signed in a triple deal on 12 January re[orted to be worth £7m. Benjamin Mwaruwari was brought in for £4.1m while Emmanuel Olisadebe was signed from Panathinaikos and goalkeeper Dean Kiely arrived from Charlton – both on free ttransfers.
