Youngsters Ben Sahar and Jimmy Smith have both signed six-month loan deals today.

Israeli international forward Sahar has agreed a temporary move to Portsmouth until January, while Smith moves to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

Sahar, 18, became our youngest ever full international at the age of 17 in February 2007, and made four sub appearances for us during the 2006/7 campaign.

Last season he spent time on loan at both QPR and Sheffield Wednesday, scoring vital goals that helped the Owls' survival.

Smith, last season's reserve team captain, also went out on loan, but had his spell at Norwich City hampered by injury. In the past he too has been at QPR on loan, where he showed his ability with five goals in eight games before going on to make 31 appearances for the Rs.

The 21-year-old made his first team debut in the final league game of 2006/7, a draw with Newcastle United.

Excellant move for Sahar, obviously he has to force his way into getting games. But at his age it is great to get a loan move to a Premiership club, and Portsmouth these days are at a pretty decent level.
