Goalkeeper Simon Eastwood signs for Portsmouth on non-contract terms.

League One side Portsmouth have completed the signing of goalkeeper Simon Eastwood.

Due to the current financial situation at Fratton Park, the 23-year-old has joined the club on non-contract terms.

However, manager Michael Appleton is hoping that the move will turn into a permanent one.

"Obviously we need a goalkeeper and Simon has been playing in the pre-season games for us," Appleton told the club's official website.

"It's on a non-contract basis, so it could be ripped up at any time, but hopefully in the future we'll be looking at giving him a contract."

Eastwood has gone straight into the squad for this evening's League Cup tie against Plymouth Argyle.
