Reeco Hackett-Fairchild signs for Pompey

Pompey have completed the signing of forward Reeco Hackett-Fairchild from Bromley for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old – who has been given the number 18 shirt – has penned a two-and-a-half-year deal at Fratton Park, with the club holding an option for a further 12 months.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “He’s a left-footed player, who’s comfortable in any of the attacking positions.

“He’s got a lot of ball-playing ability, as well as an eye for goal, so we’re delighted to bring him here to work alongside the rest of our forward line.

“Am I expecting him to come straight into the first team? Probably not. But his job is to push the other guys in order to earn a place in the side – he’s certainly capable of doing that.”

Hackett-Fairchild progressed through the ranks at Dagenham & Redbridge and signed for Charlton following a successful trial.

He made 24 appearances for the Addicks and featured in an EFL Trophy defeat to Pompey at The Valley.

The Londoner then moved to Bromley last summer, having ended the previous season on loan with the National League outfit.

He has featured in 25 games for them this term and netted eight goals, including braces against Hartlepool and Maidenhead.
