Defender becomes Jackett’s first Pompey signing

Pompey have signed defender Nathan Thompson on a two-year deal.

The 26-year-old will officially become a Blues player on July 1 when his contract with Swindon expires.

Assistant manager Joe Gallen said: “It’s nice to get the first signing over the line and we’ve brought in a very talented and experienced League One performer.

“We’ve got every confidence in Nathan that he’s going to do extremely well for Pompey.

“He’s a good ball player and is an excellent talker and motivator – and he can play in a number of positions.”

Thompson progressed through the ranks at the County Ground and made 187 appearances for the Robins.

He was awarded his first professional contract in 2009, while his senior debut arrived in a victory over Torquay the following year.

Thompson helped Swindon secure the League Two title in 2012 and skippered them to the League One play-off final in 2015.

He can play at right-back or in the centre of defence, while he is also comfortable in a midfield role.

Blues bring in Swindon striker

Pompey have signed striker Michael Smith from Swindon on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old spent three months on loan at Fratton Park last season and scored four times in 16 appearances.

He netted winning goals against Carlisle and AFC Wimbledon and was also on target in clashes with Bristol Rovers and Plymouth.

Smith said: “I really enjoyed my time here last season and am over the moon to be a Pompey player again.”

The Darlington youth product – who also spent time on loan at Barnsley last term – joined Swindon from Charlton in 2014.

He scored 26 goals in 72 games during his time with the Robins, helping them reach the League One play-off final in May 2015.

Smith becomes Paul Cook’s fifth summer signing, following the captures of Matt Clarke, Danny Rose, Carl Baker and Drew Talbot
