Reeco Hackett has put pen to paper on a new Pompey contract.

The versatile 24-year-old forward has agreed a two-year contract that keeps him at Fratton Park until the summer of 2024.

He has netted five goals in 35 appearances since joining the Blues from Bromley at the beginning of 2020.

All of those strikes came during the 2021/22 campaign, including in League One victories over Lincoln and Doncaster.

Hackett said: “I’m over the moon to have signed a new contract that will keep me at this great football club.

"Hopefully I can kick on this season and really show what I can do."

“We’d been in talks for a little while, but it was always something that I really wanted to do, so I’m buzzing.

“I picked up an injury last season and that was frustrating, although I was pleased with how things had been going before that.

“In a lot of the games I was used as a wing-back, which isn’t my natural position, so there was plenty of learning for me there.

“I probably improved as a player overall because of that, so hopefully I can kick on this season and really show what I can do.

“I’ve spoken to a few of the boys over the break and everyone’s excited to get back and try to have a successful campaign.”

"Whenever I speak to our players about new contracts, I know that their relationship with the supporters plays a big part."

Blues boss Danny Cowley added: “We’re really pleased that Reeco has signed a new deal because he’s still a young player and has a fantastic learning capacity.

“There’s still a lot more to come from him and he’s someone who can be used in a variety of positions, while he also has tactical intelligence.

“He had a good first part of the season and it was unfortunately curtailed through injury, but he worked hard in rehab and is in good shape.

“We feel that Reeco can really push on now because he has the ability to both create and score goals, so we’re delighted he’s staying with us.

“Whenever I speak to our players about new contracts, I know that their relationship with the supporters plays a big part.”
