Completing the trio is midfielder Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain, son of former Pompey favourite Mark Chamberlain.

In addition, defender Dory Yates will remain for an additional six months, giving the club longer to assess him following an injury-hampered campaign.

Leaving Fratton Park will be Kaleem Haitham, Brandon Joseph-Buadi and Liam Sayers.

Adam May signed professional terms in August.
