Jed Wallace thanked Pompey for his big break after signing for Wolves.
Wallace today inked a three-year deal with the Championship side for a fee in the region of £275,000.
He told wolves.co.uk: ‘Portsmouth are an important club to me and they gave me my chance in football.
‘I don’t think you can ever forget things like that.
‘For me now I am desperate to prove myself at a higher level.’
Wallace believes there are similarities between the fans of his old club - and the one he joins.
He said: ‘I am used to passionate supporters, being at Portsmouth.
‘I spoke to people who have played at Wolves and they have said that it feels like a big club and Molineux feels like a big arena when you get there to play football.’
