Marc Wilson extends his contract

Marc Wilson extends his contract

On the day that Pompey completed their fifth signing of the summer with Arnold Mvuemba arriving from Rennes - development in youth has also been strengthen further with other new arrivals and the news that Marc Wilson has agreed a new 2-year contract.

Wilson said on the new and improved Pompey site 'I am really pleased - chuffed to bits to be honest you. I've enjoyed being at Portsmouth and hopefully this season I'll get a chance to play'.

The Irish U21 international is a product of our own youth system; so it is very positive to see him given a new contract so he can stay here for a while longer and hopefully stake a claim for a place - when many before him seem to have been shown the door too soon?

After successful loan spells with Yeovil and Bournemouth, Pompey made it clear they wanted to keep him and they have - and maybe he might even get a chance this season? The league cup could be a strong possibility.

So with Marc Wilson (19), Martin Cranie (20) - having arrived from the Saints, Paris Cowan-Hall (16) and Callum Reynolds (17) - the two kids from Rushden & Diamonds, it would appear that plans are now very much geared at the long term as well as the present.

Not forgetting that at 22 Arnold Mvuemba is still very young as it fellow arrival - and record signing - Sulley Muntari, also 22.

So we have what is starting to look a nice blend of youth and experience, all we need now is the strikers - and they will come!

exciting news but who is he? as for Paris Cowan-Hall, how are the Fratton end going to make up a chant about him? i suppose due to his age they've got about 10 years to think about it. Nice to see us thinking about youth though.

i could be wrong but i think - at least hope! - The Rabbi is talking about marc wilson? all i know is he is one of one of our own products - and we dont get many now - that did very well on loan with yeovil and bournemouth... 'arry and co were worried he might leave but the fact he hasn't is very good news... in 3 or 4 yrs time when paris cowan-hall starts banging the goals in i am sure we will think of a song for him :)

Good to see we have invested in some young talent as well as the more experienced players in the squad already, Paul Hart will be able to get the best out of the youngsters. Toddy has gone to Charlton so good luck to him and i hope he can see to Thatcher, the cheaper the shot the beetr mate.

joking apart it is good news that we are getting fresh names coming through but lets be honest here at 20 this "kid" is hardly a spring chicken/ youngster in football terms now is he. As for paris why we want an ex con attention seeker i just DO NOT KNOW
