Pompey Academy talent Harvey Rew has been called up to Wales’ under-16 squad.

The 15-year-old defender from Gosport has been selected for the young Dragons’ UEFA Development Tournament campaign in Greece next week.

Wales will face the host nation, Slovakia and Russia in the competition.

Dave Wright, the Blues’ head of academy performance and recruitment, told the club’s website: ‘We’re proud of Harvey’s achievements and hopefully he does well.

‘Gaining international recognition is all part of the development process and it can only benefit him in the long-term.’
