Portsmouth finally have some good news to celebrate as midfielder Jed Wallace has signed a new three deal with the club, according to Portsmouth's official website.

Wallace was out of contract with the South coast club at the end of June, but has put pen to paper on a new deal that will keep him there until at least 2017.

Premier league clubs were reportedly interested in the player, who scored 7 goals from 44 appearances.

Despite being promotion favourites at the beginning of the season, Pompey flirted with relegation all season.

The club turned to Academy manager Andy Awford to save them from dropping out of the Football League and now has the job on a permanent basis.

According to his manager the ambitious midfielder is looking to be successful with the Blues.

Awford told the Portsmouth website: "He’s put down roots here and wants to achieve things with Pompey – we’re delighted about that. It’s a big season for Jed, but his attributes are there for everyone to see."

Pompey will not be looking for a repeat performance and will hope that they will challenge for at least a play off next season.

To do this the Blues will have to keep hold of their key player, which is why it was essential to keep hold of Jed Wallace if they want to target the automatic places as opposes to the lottery of the play offs
