The 24-year-old scored four times in 16 appearances while on loan from Swindon during the second half of last season.

Now Paul Cook has moved to make the striker’s stay a permanent one, recruiting him on a two-year deal.

Smith represents Pompey’s fifth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Matt Clarke, Danny Rose, Carl Baker and Drew Talbot.
