Veteran defender Herman Hreidarsson has commmited himself to Fratton Park for 1 more year.
The news of the left back’s decision to stay on the south coast, has ended speculation of the 34 year-old moving for Middlesbrough switch.
The Icelandic International, who joined Portsmouth after a spell at Charlton Athletic, has been a key member in Pompey’s survival battle from relegation last year.
The new deal also includes the option of a further year should Hreidarsson play a certain number of games next season.
Executive chairman Peter Storrie told the clubÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s website: Ã¢â‚¬Å“HermannÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been looking at his options and heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s decided he wants to stay.”
Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s very strong and fit and had a great second half of last season.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“HermannÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a real character and a great influence in the dressing room, so weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re pleased to have him back.Ã¢â‚¬Â
