Ben Close has thanked everyone at Pompey after his move to Doncaster was confirmed.

The midfielder took to Twitter to say his goodbyes and will join the League One side when his contract expires at the end of the month.

He said: “Leaving the club was an incredibly tough decision, but it felt like the right time.

“To play almost 200 games for Portsmouth – the team I’ve supported since I was a young boy – is something I am incredibly proud of. I have had some brilliant highs that I’ll remember forever.

“I have so many people to thank for helping me along the way – coaches, team-mates, friends and family.

“I also want to thank the fans for the unbelievable support, both home and away. I’ll certainly miss playing at a packed Fratton Park.

“I’d like to wish Danny, Nicky, the staff and the squad good luck for next season. I’m sure they’ll get the club to where it belongs.”
