Millwall midfielder to join League One Portsmouth

BEN Thompson is set to join Portsmouth to link up with former Lions boss Kenny Jackett. 

Thompson, 22, will sign for Pompey on loan for the 2018-19 season, but Millwall will have the option to recall him.

Midfielder Thompson made his first appearance of the season in Millwall's 3-1 penalty-shootout EFL Cup win over Gillingham on Tuesday night.

Thompson was a regular in Millwall's side in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, but played just eight times in the last campaign.

Jackett's Portsmouth are fifth in League One after winning their first two games.
