Portsmouth have confirmed the signing of Croatian defender Boris Zivkovic on a three-year contract.
Zivkovic, who has won 25 caps for his country, joins the Barclaycard Premiership new boys from Bayer Leverkusen after passing a medical.
Harry Redknapp told the club's official website, www.pompeyfc.co.uk: "He is a quality signing and will be a big bonus to us.
"Boris has played in Germany for six years having been with and come up against the best.
"You don't play that amount of times for Bayer Leverkusen, as well as captaining your country, unless you have more than a little class about you.
"I am pleased with the way things are going and we are starting to build a good squad. We are getting there and I hope to come up with two or three additions to supplement what has already been built."
