Portsmouth fans delighted with Walkes arrival

Portsmouth revealed on Wednesday that they had secured a permanent deal for Tottenham Hotspur defender Anton Walkes.

The 21-year-old ended the 2017-18 campaign on loan at League One outfit Portsmouth following a spell with Atlanta United in the MLS.

Walkes has made a first-team appearance for Tottenham, but that came in a EFL Cup match back in September 2016.

The Englishman, who is capable of operating in both defence and midfield, was highly-rated during his time in the youth system at Tottenham.

However, the 6ft 1in ace has now joined Portsmouth on a permanent deal.

The signing is a real coup for Pompey, and their club’s supporters have been reacting to the news on social media.

Kenny Jackett has now made six signings in this summer’s transfer window, and the club will be expected to challenge for League One promotion next term.
