Portsmouth have signed winger Kal Naismith from League Two rivals Accrington for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old former Rangers attacker has signed a three-year contract at Fratton Park.

"I'm delighted to have signed for Portsmouth, a massive club with a great history," Naismith wrote on Twitter.

"I have to say a massive thank you to Accrington, firstly for giving me my chance in England and being there for me through a very hard time."

Naismith was given a leave of absence by Stanley manager John Coleman in October after the death of his girlfriend.

He made 39 appearances for Accrington last season, scoring four goals.

Meanwhile, BBC Sheffield understand Portsmouth have made a bid to sign Chesterfield forward Gary Roberts, who has previously played under Pompey boss Paul Cook.
