England

Along with fellow academy player Matt Casey, Smith was offered a chance to extend his stay with Pompey at the conclusion of the 2017/18 season.

The attacking midfielder - who accepted a third-year scholarship in May 2018 - began his Blues journey as an Under-8, and has so far represented the club at every level up to Under-23.

Handed a first-year apprenticeship in July 2017, 'Smudger' has played in a variety of positions for the youth team and for the U23s in the Premier League Cup.

The London-born midfielder, a talented dribbler, is something of a veteran of the Fratton youth setup, having been on the club's books for over a decade.

Still awaiting his professional debut, Smith was amongst the substitutes for a handful of injury-hit Pompey's Sky Bet League One fixtures in 2017/2018.

Flourishing on loan at Bognor Regis Town so far in 2018/19, Smith edged closer to his senior professional bow for the Blues in November, featuring as an unused substitute for the Blues' third and final Checkatrade Trophy group stage fixture with Tottenham Hotspur Under-21s.
