Pompey sign Anton Walkes

Pompey have signed midfielder Anton Walkes in a loan deal from Tottenham until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old – who is also comfortable playing at the back – played for Major League Soccer side Atlanta United during the 2017 campaign.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “He can play in midfield, the centre of defence or at right-back and he’s an athletic player, so we’re pleased to add him for the rest of the season.

"He’s someone I have a lot of time for and think he’s got a very bright future."

“The experience of coming to a club like Pompey will be a good one for him and he’ll be keen to help us move towards the top six.

“He’s someone I have a lot of time for and think he’s got a very bright future. He’s certainly got all the tools to succeed.”

Walkes is a graduate of Tottenham’s academy, who made his senior debut from the bench in a League Cup victory over Gillingham in September 2016.
