Routledge has arrived on a season-long loan from Tottenham - the fourth player this month to move to Fratton Park from White Hart Lane, following Sean Davis, Noe Pamarot and Pedro Mendes.
"Wayne has an awful lot of ability and is still at an age where there is a lot of room for him to become a really great player," said a delighted Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp.
"We are crying out for a wide man and to get someone in the mould of Wayne is tremendous and he will really give us the width we have been missing.
"There were very encouraging signs against Liverpool and we have now added a bit more quality in a position where we can create a lot more danger in the opposing penalty box."
Serbian midfielder Koroman, 27, has also arrived on loan and he has come in from Russian outfit Terek Groznyi.
Koroman will be the second Serbia & Montenegro international to sign for Pompey this season, although fellow countryman Zvonimir Vukic has just completed a loan move to Partizan Belgrade as things failed to work out for him on the South Coast.
