Portsmouth have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Simon Eastwood on non-contract terms after coming out of administration.
Eastwood has been training with the south coast club for the past month and featured in friendlies against Gibraltar, Bolton and AFC Wimbledon.
The 23-year-old is eligible to go straight into the team to face Plymouth in their Capital One Cup first-round tie.
Pompey are expected to field a youth team in the game, with Eastwood and assistant manager Ashley Westwood the only exceptions.
Blues boss Michael Appleton told the club's official website: "Obviously we need a goalkeeper and Simon has been playing in the pre-season games for us.
"It's on a non-contract basis, so it could be ripped up at any time, but hopefully in the future we'll be looking at giving him a contract."
