Portsmouth Official Site -'BRIEN SIGNS FOR POMPEY
Pompey have completed the signing of goalkeeper Liam O’Brien from QPR.
The Blues have paid the Championship side an undisclosed fee for the 16-year-old.
O’Brien, who has signed as a schoolboy, has also agreed a two-year scholarship, which begins next season.
The 6ft 2in Londoner chose Pompey despite interest from Premier League rivals Aston Villa and Arsenal.
Pompey director of youth operations Paul Hart said: “We watched him an awful lot for QPR and were impressed.
"In the present climate there are few decent young English goalkeepers, but for a young boy Liam is mature and confident.
“We’ve beaten off Arsenal and Aston Villa to get him, which shows where we’re aiming to be.
“He was particularly attracted to the idea of coming to Pompey with Harry Redknapp, David James and goalkeeping coach David Coles.
“It appealed to him that he would have a great mentor in David James.” Portsmouth
