Pompey have signed left-back Cameron Pring on a season-long loan deal from Bristol City.
The 22-year-old will wear the number 23 shirt during his time at Fratton Park after arriving from the Championship outfit.
Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “We needed another specialist left-back because after Lee Brown, we don’t have another experienced player in that position.
“Cameron’s an up-and-coming, talented footballer, who I feel can do a really good job for us this season.
“He’s particularly strong going forward and I believe he would link up well with Ronan Curtis on that side of the pitch.
"He went out and played at Walsall last season and after a year in League Two, I feel he’s ready for League One."
“Rather than just sitting around at Bristol City, he’s been out on a lot of loans and that’s helped him develop.
“He went out and played at Walsall last season and after a year in League Two, I feel he’s ready for League One.
“Cameron actually appeared against us in the EFL Trophy back in January and is someone who we’ve been following for a while, so we’re delighted to sign him.”
Pring began his career in the academy of hometown club Cheltenham before moving to Ashton Gate in the summer of 2016.
He had temporary spells with non-league sides Guernsey, Merthyr, Aldershot and Hereford, then had a stint with Newport.
Pring returned to Cheltenham for the second half of the 2018/19 season and spent the entirety of the last campaign with Walsall, where he made 24 appearances.
