His signing brings an end to new manager Paul Cook’s pursuit of a player he identified as key to his Fratton Park plans.

Roberts is the fourth summer signing made by Cook, following his appointment last month.

Left-back Enda Stevens arrived earlier this week on a free transfer, after last month’s capture of out-of-contract duo Kyle Bennett and Kal Naismith.

Cook told the Pompey website: ‘I’m delighted that we’ve signed Gary and I view this as a no-risk transfer, which is always great.

‘His record speaks for itself and I’m sure the fans will be looking forward to seeing him in action.’
