Now Ritchie is plying his trade in the Premier League with Newcastle.

However, he’s still got a burning desire to again don the star and crescent, revealing he wants to be part of the club again before he retires.

And Ritchie's comments have unsurprisingly gone done a storm among the Fratton faithful, with an overwhelming majority wanting to see him come back.

Here's how supporters have been reacting on social media...

That would be good if he does come back. A great asset- maybe in the championship?

This would be amazing! Shirt sales would go up for sure.

Love this. Pompey lad through and through would love to see him back

This man oozes passion. Imagine what he’d be like playing for his boyhood club. Get him back in a Pompey shirt once we’re back in the championship. Be our Merson to get us into the Prem.

Would love to see him back here. Will be interesting to see if this plays out in a few years. End of his current contract in 2023 maybe?

@gdhawkes

Wanting to be the next Merse and inspire a promotion...can’t see him having quite the same impact.

@ACGR8911

Get Matt Ritchie home

@abunchofletters

Really hope this happens in a couple of seasons time:
