Portsmouth have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Luke McGee from Tottenham.
The BBC report that the 21-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at the newly-promoted League One club.
The stopper won plaudits for his starring role at Peterborough last term, where he won Player of the Season and made 45 appearances.
With little realistic chance of displacing Michel Vorm as Spurs’ back-up goalkeeper, McGee will now venture back into the lower leagues to continue his development.
Pompey have endured a frustrating summer when it comes to goalkeepers. As per the Portsmouth News, they have grown tired of waiting for Christian Walton, who they hoped to bring in on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion.
It was imperative than Kenny Jackett brought in at least one more number one, as Alex Bass is currently the only senior stopper on the books.
Speaking to the club’s official website, assistant manager Joe Gallen said of McGee:
“He’s come through Tottenham’s academy system and they’ve produced a lot of good players.
“It’s great that we’ve been able to bring in a goalkeeper who’s good enough now and is going to improve in the future.”
