Portsmouth have signed midfielder Simon Ferry on a two-year contract.

The 25-year-old former Celtic trainee was released by Swindon in June and becomes Pompey's 11th summer signing.

"I'm amazed and delighted that we've managed to get Simon here," manager Guy Whittingham told the club website.

"He's spent four years at Swindon and won promotion once and got to the play-offs twice. He is a player that will work his socks off so he should prove popular with the fans here."

Ferry signed professional forms at Parkhead in 2006, but never made a first-team appearances for Celtic.

He joined Swindon, initially on loan, in August 2009 before agreeing a permanent switch the following summer.

In his four seasons with the Robins he played 174 matches, scoring eight goals.
