John Marquis feels his move to Pompey could see him settle down.
The striker has spoken of his hopes of staying at Fratton long-term following his switch from Doncaster.
The 27-year-old, whose partner has just had their second baby, told The News: ‘I got a call from Kenny in the summer. The manager knew I’m ambitious and would have a lot of offers elsewhere, but he was keen to tell me he’d like to have me if there was a possibility to get it done. I went back to Doncaster and weighed up a lot of situations.
‘There’s been a lot of stuff going on off the pitch and it’s been a busy time, but this suits me down to the ground. It’s not like I’m popping and popping out. I can see where the club wants to go.
‘I’m fit, healthy and it feels like the right move at the right time. I want to look to the future for me and my family. I’ve got good security at a good club which is back down home. It’s a great fit.’
