‘Easy decision’ – Portsmouth snap up Tottenham youngster

Portsmouth have signed goalkeeper Luke McGee from Tottenham for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old, who has signed a three-year contract at Fratton Park, spent 11 years at Spurs, where Kenny Jackett had a spell on the coaching staff before landing the job of Pompey boss.

McGee impressed while on loan at Peterborough last season and a number of clubs were interested in signing him.

“I was out on loan last season and first met Kenny when I went back to Spurs,” McGee told Portsmouth’s website.

“We started talking and he liked what I was about, while I was interested in what he had to say.

“He did such a good job at Wolves and Millwall, so of course that becomes a factor. Everyone around him also has a great reputation.

“Eleven years is a long time, so obviously I had to think about it, but it was the perfect time to move on and the perfect club to join.

“It was an easy decision for me in the end, though, and now I just can’t wait to get going.

“I’ve had a taste of League One, so hopefully I can come in, do well, keep us high up the table and help get the club back to where everyone wants to be.”
