‘That’s mad’ – These Portsmouth fans react to transfer news

Published

on

Portsmouth right-back Anton Walkes has chosen to call it a day on his time at Fratton Park, choosing to move on from Kenny Jackett’s side.

The 22-year-old decided to make the move across to America permanently and sign for Atlanta United, having previously made 23 appearances while on loan from Tottenham Hotspur in 2017.

Having risen through the ranks at Tottenham, Walkes first came to Fratton Park in January 2018 on loan from the Premier League club and made 12 appearances in league action as he adjusted to senior football in England.

During the summer of 2018, Jackett chose to make the defender’s stay permanent and made 54 appearances during his 18-month spell on the south coast, scoring two goals, as he had to settle for a bit-part role under Jackett.
