Arsenal Defender Armand Traore Joined Portsmouth on a Year Loan Deal

Arsenal’s left back Armand Traore has joined Portsmouth on a loan deal for a year. The 18-year-old midfielder now could be a good option for Pompey in the left back position. His inclusion will definitely strengthen Portsmouth squad. Although Hreidarsson has so far been the only reliable left back in Portsmouth squad, but now Armand Traore can be a competitor for first team action. Manager Harry Redknapp will also be happy to have someone full of potential like the Frenchman Armand Traore.

The left back joined Arsenal youth club in 2005-2006 season and played 10 matches so far for Arsenal senior team. Last year, he represented France U-19 squad as well. I think, Arsenal did not right thing by letting him go to Portsmouth on loan, because he can win more first team match at Portsmouth this season and it will definitely help the player flourish his potential fully. I hope, by the time he will be back at the end of this season, he will be able to impress Wenger to consider him for first team football pretty much regularly.
