Stevenage striker Patrick Agyemang has given a clear indication that he will make his loan spell at Portsmouth permanent in the summer, reports Sky
The former Ghanaian international has become a big favourite at Fratton Park since joining in January, and was given a standing ovation for his starring role in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Sheffield United.
The 32-year old, whose contract at Boro comes to an end in the summer, told: “I’m trying not to give too much away. But we’ll see what happens.”
Agyemang started his career at Wimbledon, and made over 75 starts scoring 22 goals for the Dons before a move to Gillingham.
Between 2004 and 2008, £850K had been spend on securing the big man’s services by Gillingham, Preston and Q.PR.
When Agyemang moved to Pompey in January, they became his fifth club in five years, after struggling to make an impact in the Championship for Q.P.R, Bristol City and Millwall.
But now the London born Ghanaian has his sights set on a permanent move to the Hampshire side after his successful loan spell.
Agyemang added, “There are positive noises and I love being here. The fans have been amazing to me and made me feel welcome. I’m happy at the moment.”
“It’s good to be appreciated. That standing ovation was brilliant. It’s a good feeling to come off the pitch and have 18,000 fans cheering my name.”
