Tareiq Holmes-Dennis signs for Pompey

Left-back arrives on loan

Pompey have signed left-back Tareiq Holmes-Dennis on a season-long loan from Huddersfield.

The 21-year-old made 15 appearances for the Terriers during the 2016/17 season after signing from Charlton last summer.

He appeared in both legs of the play-off semi-final triumph over Sheffield Wednesday and was on the bench when they beat Reading at Wembley to reach the Premier League.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “I saw him in the Championship last season and he’s a modern-day full-back.

"We’re really pleased that he’s come to this club and I’m looking forward to working with him."

“He’s naturally left-footed and very athletic with good pace. He can get up and down the line.

“We’re really pleased that he’s come to this club and I’m looking forward to working with him.

“He’s eager for a chance and is quite close with a few of  the players, so I believe he’s ready for the opportunity.”

Holmes-Dennis is a former England under-18 international who progressed through the ranks at Charlton and signed professional terms in 2013.

He gained experience with spells out on loan at Oxford, Plymouth and Oldham before penning a three-year deal with Huddersfield.

Holmes-Dennis was in the Argyle side that were beaten 2-1 at Fratton Park back in April 2015.
