Portsmouth entered into a new agreement with Reeco Hackett-Fairchild, in accordance with Football Insider.

According to them reportthe 24-year-old has put pen to paper on a new two-year contract at Fratton Park.

The winger’s current deal was due to expire at the end of June, meaning he would have been allowed to move clubs on a free transfer this summer.

Instead, however, it looks like the winger has decided that his immediate future remains on the south coast with Pompey.

This is also understandable, given that, according to Football InsiderPortsmouth boss Danny Cowley is a huge fan of the player and was keen to secure his signature before his contract expires.

He is said that Cowley sees Hackett-Fairchild as a key part of his future plans at Fratton Park as he looks to aim again League 1in the top six next season.

Hackett-Fairchild made 34 appearances in all competitions for Portsmouth in 2021/22 before an injury suffered in late February cut short his season.

Until then, the 24-year-old was having the best campaign of his career.

The verdict

The news of Reeco Hackett-Fairchild agreeing new terms with Portsmouth is fantastic news for the club.

When you’re in their shoes and need to improve your league standings, the last thing you want is to lose your best players for nothing, and this new deal prevents that from happening.

Not only that, but it crucially keeps the player at the club for the next two seasons where he can be a really key player in Portsmouth’s bid to gain promotion to the club. Championship.

Danny Cowley was getting the most out of the player before his injury in February, but hopefully the 24-year-old’s strong showing will continue when he returns next season.
