Portsmouth are well known for producing good youth players through their academy, who eventually make the step up to the first-team.
Jack Whatmough and Ben Close are two examples of this at the moment, and Kenny Jackett has been keen to give youth a chance in the Leasing.com trophy competition this season.
The disappointing news is that one youngster that was tipped for big things at the club left during January – Leon Maloney, who joined Dutch second division side FC Volendam.
Despite that, there will be other talents willing to make that step up and push for recognition in time for next season.
Here, we take a look at three talented Pompey youngsters you should keep an eye on…
The 17-year-old central defender is highly thought of at Pompey, signing an 18-month professional contract at the club during December.
He has represented England at under-17 level, and has made two League One matchday squads this season for Kenny Jackett’s side.
He last featured for the first-team in the Leasing.com trophy quarter-final tie against Peterborough United last campaign.
