Portsmouth's young French ace Gael Nlundulu is set to sign a professional contract at Pompey, following a great season for the player.

Nlundulu signed from Paris Saint-Germain last summer, and also was a regular for the French U-17 outfit before turning 18 this year.

Although many Pompey fans may have not seen the young gun play, I was fortunate to see him play for Portsmouth reserves against Stoke back in March, and was very impressed, and he teared up the Stoke defence, including Andy Griffin.

He looks like a great player for the future, and along with Pele who I hear is a great asset for the future, along with Torric Jibril.

The rumours within the French press claim that Gael has signed a contract until 2011—and I would personally like to see him feature in the first team.

If John Utaka can make the first team, take the ball round the keeper and miss the open goal in two successive games, and miss a penalty as badly as he did on Saturday, then I think Nlundulu should definitely be given the chance.

Play up, Pompey!
