Portsmouth have signed full-back Drew Talbot on a two-year deal following his release by Chesterfield.

Talbot started his career at Sheffield Wednesday, and has also had spells with Scunthope, Luton and Plymouth.

"He's everything that our fans like about a player - he's robust, works hard and is very fit."

Pompey finished sixth in the League Two table last season, but suffered a 3-2 aggregate defeat by Plymouth Argyle in the play-off semi-finals
