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.

Connor Ronan / Sylvain Deslandes
Loan : Wolves – Portsmouth
Pompey have signed Wolves duo Sylvain Deslandes and Connor Ronan on loan for the remainder of the season.
Defender Deslandes – who can play at left-back or in a more central role – is a 20-year-old who has represented France up to under-20 level and featured eight times for the Molineux outfit.
Republic of Ireland youth international Ronan, 19, is a midfielder who has played 13 first team games for Wolves.
He has appeared three times for them in the Championship this term, including in away victories at Derby and Burton.
Both players featured for Wolves against Pompey in the under-23 Premier League Cup competition last season.
Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “We’re short on natural players at the back currently, so Sylvain can hopefully help us continue our excellent defensive record this season.
“Connor’s strength is his creativity, while he also has pace and vision on the ball. He’s someone I rate very highly and has a bright future in the game.
“I worked with both of them during my time Wolves and am pleased to link up with them once again.
“We’ve given them an excellent opportunity to play for Pompey and help us progress during the second half of the campaign.”
