Close had made four appearances this season after being hindered by a hamstring problem for much of the campaign.

The 20-year-old has showed his promise in 27 senior Blues appearances, however, since being given his debut in the 2014-15 season.

Close’s existing Pompey deal comes to a close at the end of the season.
