Pompey have confirmed the signing of Huddersfield left-back Tareiq Holmes-Dennis.

The 21-year-old has moved to Fratton Park from the Premier League new boys on a season-long loan.

He is Blues boss Kenny Jackett’s second summer acquistion, following the arrival of Nathan Thompson on a two-year deal.

Holmes-Dennis made nine Championship appearances for David Wagner’s side last season as the Terriors secured their place in the top flight via the play-offs.

The defender was an unsed substitute in Huddersfield’s play-off final success against Reading but played in both legs of the semi-final defeat of Sheffield Wednesday.

Holmes-Dennis, who began his career at Charlton, said: ‘It’s such a big club, it should be higher up the leagues and I remember where they were when I was young.

‘I have always watched them in the Premier League and the Championship, it’s a massive club which is run professionally with a good bunch of players.

‘Game time is what I need, so dropping down leagues doesn’t bother me too much.

‘Last season at Huddersfield there were 20,000 fans there every week – and that will be the same here.’
