The 21-year-old has penned a two-and-a-half-year deal at Fratton Park, with the club holding an option for a further 12 months. Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “He’s a left-footed player who’s comfortable in any of the attacking positions.

“He’s got a lot of ball-playing ability, as well as an eye for goal, so we’re delighted to bring him here to work alongside the rest of our forward line. Am I expecting him to come straight into the first team?

“Probably not. But his job is to push the other guys in order to earn a place in the side – he’s certainly capable of doing that.”

The Londoner moved to Bromley last summer, having ended the previous season on loan with the National League outfit from Charlton. He has featured in 25 games for them this term and netted eight goals, including braces against Hartlepool and Maidenhead.

Bromley boss Neil Smith told their club website: “It shows we’re doing something right. We’ve done it before this too, even with loan players who’ve come in from Championship clubs and then gone back and straight into their first teams.

“We’re disappointed to lose him but also very pleased for the young man.”
