Portsmouth signs Traore on loan from Arsenal

Portsmouth signs Traore on loan from Arsenal

Portsmouth signed left back Armand Traore on a yearlong loan from Premier League rival Arsenal on Thursday.
The signing of the 18-year-old Traore, who has played 10 of his 18 matches for the Gunners in the League Cup, should mean that manager Harry Redknapp no longer has to rely exclusively on Hermann Hreidarsson at left back.
Although Hreidarsson was at left back in the team that won last season's FA Cup, he is primarily a central defender _ one of four defenders in the side that lost Portsmouth's opening Premier League match 4-0 at Chelsea last week.
He could now provide cover to the established central defensive partnership of Sol Campbell and Sylvain Distin.
