Primus set for new deal at Pompey

Portsmouth's veteran defender Linvoy Primus is set to be offered a new contract at Fratton Park. Pompey's longest-serving player is expected to be rewarded with an ambassadorial role combined with more limited playing responsibilities. The 35-year-old told BBC Radio Solent: "When this week and Wigan are out of the way, I'm sure we will announce something in the next few weeks." Primus made his first appearance of the season against Sunderland on Monday. A serious knee injury kept the defender on the sidelines for the entire 2007/08 campaign. The long road to recovery ended when Primus spent three months on loan at his first club Charlton last November before his late substitute cameo against Sunderland earlier this week. "It was nice, I enjoyed the appreciation from the crowd, so it was cool," he added.
