Portsmouth confirmed on Monday morning that they had secured the signature of experienced defender Lee Brown on a two-year contract.
The 27-year-old will officially join the League One club when his contract with Bristol Rovers expires at the end of June.
Brown started his professional career with Queens Park Rangers, but only made one league appearance for the R’s before joining Bristol Rovers in 2011.
The Englishman has made over 300 appearances for Bristol Rovers – including 33 League One appearances during the 2017-18 campaign.
Brown has followed Tom Naylor in making the move to Fratton Park as Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett looks to put together a squad capable of challenging for the playoffs next season.
The Portsmouth supporters have been reacting to the signing on social media, and it would be fair to say that the bulk are pleased with their club’s transfer business.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the League One club’s fans can be seen below:
Great signing. Congratulations.
Best of luck, Browner. Gas Legend.
