Dindane close to action

The Ivorian international joined Pompey on a season-long loan from Lens this summer with a view to permanent deal.

“People are worrying as I have not played so far,” he told Sky Sports.

“But the season is long and I am getting sharp. I have a special program and to be honest I am feeling fine, I am almost ready to play.

“Mr Hart wants me to be properly ready and I am well. Hopefully I will join the first team next week.

“I can’t wait to start playing and I thank the Portsmouth board for giving me the opportunity to play in the best league in the world.”
