Tom Naylor is the latest new arrival at Fratton Park

He said 'It strengthens the spine of our side, while he also brings us recent Championship experience.

'Tom’s a ball-winner and I feel that he’ll complement the other talented players we already have at this club.

'He’s someone who can play in a variety of positions, although he’s primarily been brought in as a defensive midfielder.

'We do feel that the squad is being improved this summer and we’re getting to where we want to be.'
