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.

Stephen Henderson

Loan : Nottingham Forest – Portsmouth



Stephen Henderson has returned to Pompey in a loan deal from Nottingham Forest until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old goalkeeper made 27 appearances after joining the Blues in the summer of 2011, but financial problems saw him shipped out to West Ham eight months later.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “I’m delighted to bring Stephen in. His experience will be vital in a young squad, as we enter the crucial final third of the season and push for the top six.”

Henderson started his career at Aston Villa and then played for Bristol City prior to his first stint at Fratton Park.

The former Republic of Ireland under-21 international left the Hammers to join Charlton in 2014, moving to Forest two years later.
