Kal Naismith and Nicke Kabamba
End Of Contract
Portsmouth Football Club can confirm that Jez Bedford, Nicke Kabamba and Theo Widdrington will be released following the expiration of their contracts this summer.
The club have also been unable to reach agreement with Kal Naismith over a new deal and he has decided to pursue options elsewhere.
We would like to thank all those players for their service to the club and wish them well for the future.
Pompey have chosen to take up the option of a new deal for goalkeeper Alex Bass and defender Brandon Haunstrup, and are also talking with Adam May about a new contract for the midfielder.
The club are also in discussions with Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain about extending his contract as he recovers from a broken leg.
Christian Burgess, Conor Chaplin, Matt Clarke, Ben Close, Dion Donohue, Gareth Evans, Oliver Hawkins, Jamal Lowe, Luke McGee, Brett Pitman, Danny Rose, Nathan Thompson and Jack Whatmough are all still under contract.
Sylvain Deslandes, Tareiq Holmes-Dennis, Stephen Henderson, Matty Kennedy, Stuart O’Keefe, Connor Ronan and Anton Walkes have returned to their parent clubs following the end of their loan deals at Fratton Park and we thank them for their contributions.

Pompey have signed striker Nicke Kabamba from Hampton & Richmond for an undisclosed fee
The 23-year-old – who has netted 16 National League South goals this season – has penned an 18-month deal with the Blues, with the club holding an option for a further year.
Kabamba said: “I’m really grateful for this opportunity and hopefully I can bring my scoring ratio into this league.
“Coming from non-league and now signing for a club like Pompey, life’s going to completely change.
“I’ve quit my job as a car salesman after four years and I will be moving down to the area.
“Playing in front of 17,000 people will be the strangest thing. I’ve seen it on TV, but it’s not until I’m out there and am able to soak in the atmosphere for myself first-hand that it will all sink in.”
Kabamba has previously turned out for Burnham and Hemel Hempstead, and scored at Bath in his last appearance for Hampton & Richmond
