‘There was other interest but once I knew Pompey wanted me it was the only place I wanted to go.

He had spells on loan at Cowdenbeath and Partick Thistle before sealing a move to Accrington in 2013.

The Glasgow-born forward went on to score 14 times in 73 appearances during his stay at the Crown Ground.

He has now become the second summer arrival at Fratton Park – following Kyle Bennett – as new boss Paul Cook begins to shape his squad.
