21-year-old goalkeeper moves to Portsmouth to link up with Kenny Jackett again

Luke McGee paid tribute to Tottenham Hotspur after completing a move to League One side Portsmouth on Wednesday.

The goalkeeper signed a three-year deal with the Fratton Park club and moved for an undisclosed fee.

After the transfer was confirmed, McGee posted a heartfelt message to everyone at Spurs and expressed a determination to potentially return one day.

“I have spent 11 amazing years at my boyhood club and this was never going to be an easy decision,” said McGee.

“Thank you to all of the coaches, staff and players who helped make me who I am today and I will always be grateful. I hope we cross paths again soon and wish everyone the best of luck for the future.

“Now my focus is 100 per cent on being a Portsmouth player and I can’t wait to get started. Thanks to the manager and the club for believing in me and giving me this opportunity. I can’t wait to get going.”
