Israeli international Ben Sahar has agreed a six-month loan deal with Portsmouth. This will be the Chelsea striker's third loan move away from Stamford Bridge since joining the London club from Hapoel Tel Aviv two years ago. Last season the 18-year-old played for both QPR and Sheffield Wednesday of the English Championship. At QPR, Sahar failed to score, playing in nine matches, while at Sheffield he found the net three times in 12 appearances and helped the side avoid relegation. Sahar, who became Israel's youngest ever international in February of last year, has struggled to break into the Chelsea first team, making just three appearances so far for the Premier League and Champions League runner-up. "I've always wanted to be part of a Premier League team and I'm happy to be at Portsmouth," Sahar said. "I have heard a lot of good things about manager Harry Redknapp, the club and the staff and they obviously had a very good season, so I'm happy to be here." Portsmouth finished in eighth position last season and will be playing in the UEFA Cup for the first time ever in the coming campaign after winning its first FA Cup since 1939 last season. "I know that I'm young and I still need to develop, to get experience and to learn from big players, like there are here," Sahar said. "I'm ready for the challenge of being part of such a big club, like Portsmouth. I want to be part of it and to show that I deserve to be here. My goal is to play and I'm a striker, so of course, I want to score a few goals for Portsmouth - that's why I'm here. It's a new beginning and I'm ready for it."
