Midfielder extends Pompey deal
BEN CLOSE has agreed new terms with Pompey.
The home-grown midfielder has signed a new one-year deal, with the Blues having an option to extend that stay for a further 12 months.
Close has made 36 first-team appearances since making his debut in the 3-1 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win at Yeovil in 2014.
The Southsea man made four starts last season and spent a period out on loan at Eastleigh.
