Pompey have taken up the option to extend Louis Thompson’s contract with the club.

The 27-year-old midfielder arrived at Fratton Park last summer after leaving Norwich and made 38 appearances during the 2021/22 campaign.

His one goal was certainly a memorable one, with a late strike in February securing all three points at Shrewsbury.

Blues boss Danny Cowley said: “We are really pleased to be able to extend Louis’ time with Portsmouth Football Club.

"He adapted his role to benefit the team, giving us more defensive qualities, and is outstanding at putting out fires."

“As the season unfolded, we saw his fitness develop and his levels of performance continue to grow and grow.

“He adapted his role to benefit the team, giving us more defensive qualities, and is outstanding at putting out fires.

“But, importantly, Louis also has the technical abilities required to then be able to start our counter-attacks.”

Thompson is a former Wales under-21 international who began his career at Swindon before joining the Canaries.

Older brother Nathan made 78 appearances during two campaigns with Pompey and was part of the side that lifted the EFL Trophy in 2019.
