Michael Jacobs is delighted to have extended his Pompey stay.

Now the 30-year-old midfielder is determined to repay the faith shown in him by the Fratton faithful.

He has agreed a one-year deal to remain at the club and is the latest member of Danny Cowley’s squad to sign a new contract, following in the footsteps of Sean Raggett and Reeco Hackett.

And he is aiming to show supporters what he is capable of doing in a Blues shirt on a regular basis.

Jacobs said: “It’s great that it’s all sorted and that I’m going to be spending another season at the club.

“I’ve had an excellent relationship with the fans during my time here, despite it being a bit stop-start for me.

“But when I have played, then I feel as though I’ve produced decent performances and they’ve responded to that.

“Hopefully, with a decent pre-season under my belt, I can be fighting fit and ready to play consistently.”

Pompey lost just three of their final 18 games of last season and Jacobs wants them to take that form into the new campaign.

He said: “Our form from the end of January was really good – both in terms of performances and the number of points we collected.

“We just left it a little bit too late to be able to get into the play-offs, but it was still an encouraging way to finish and now we want to build on that.

“A lot of the squad from last season has been kept together and that’s a good stepping stone for us moving forward.

“There will obviously some changes in personnel before the start of the new season and the division is going to be strong again.

“But if we can produce the form we’re capable of on a consistent basis, then we’ll give ourselves a great chance of finding success.”
