Aneke quickly followed after his contract with MK Dons came to a close. The 25-year-old signed a two-year deal with Lockyer, 24, committing to the Addicks for the same period.

Pompey have landed five players this summer with Sean Raggettt the latest arrival this week. Raggett follows Ryan Williams, Paul Downing, Ellis Harrison and James Bolton as the five signings at Fratton Park to date.
