The 22-year-old has been a central figure in the Blues’ ongoing promotion push which has seen them top League One since September.

His outstanding partnership with Matt Clarke represents the backbone to Pompey’s ambition of Championship football next term.

Whatmough has played 92 times for the Blues and scored once since emerging from the Academy.

He follows Craig MacGillivray in this week signing a new Pompey contract, the keeper also committing until 2021.
