Pompey's new defensive recruit Rasmus Nicolaisen says coming to Pompey is taking him out of his comfort.
The 23-year-old Dane, who has made the switch from FC Midtjylland, says his aim is to make an impression in England and help Pompey win promotion.
Nicolaisen told the club website: 'English football is very attractive for me and I’m looking forward to the time when I can play in front of the fans here. I hope to meet them soon.
'I’m a defender and like to play with power. My greatest skills are my headers and duels, while I have a lot of strength. There is a good defence here, so I hope I can get into the side and show what kind of player I am. I’m looking forward to meeting up with the rest of the squad.
'This is a new adventure for me and my family – I have a wife and a kid who will come over. It’s great to get out of my comfort zone and try something new.
'The ambitions are high at this club and I’m also a guy with big ambitions, so I think it’s a good mix for us. It would be nice if we could win promotion this season and that’s certainly what we are all aiming for.'
Nicolaisen’s manager at Midtjylland was ex-Pompey full-back Brian Priske.
