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.

Tareiq Holmes-Dennis

Loan : Huddersfield Town – Portsmouth



Pompey have signed left-back Tareiq Holmes-Dennis on a season-long loan from Huddersfield.

The 21-year-old made 15 appearances for the Terriers during the 2016/17 season after signing from Charlton last summer.

He appeared in both legs of the play-off semi-final triumph over Sheffield Wednesday and was on the bench when they beat Reading at Wembley to reach the Premier League.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “I saw him in the Championship last season and he’s a modern-day full-back.

“He’s naturally left-footed and very athletic with good pace. He can get up and down the line.

“We’re really pleased that he’s come to this club and I’m looking forward to working with him.

“He’s eager for a chance and is quite close with a few of the players, so I believe he’s ready for the opportunity.”

Holmes-Dennis is a former England under-18 international who progressed through the ranks at Charlton and signed professional terms in 2013.

He gained experience with spells out on loan at Oxford, Plymouth and Oldham before penning a three-year deal with Huddersfield.

Holmes-Dennis was in the Argyle side that were beaten 2-1 at Fratton Park back in April 2015.
