Portsmouth: Brandon Haunstrup completes Kilmarnock move

Portsmouth: Brandon Haunstrup completes Kilmarnock move - Portsmouth Transfer Rumours

Former Portsmouth defender Brandon Haunstrup has completed a move to Scottish side Kilmarnock.

With the 2019/2020 over for League One side Portsmouth, boss Kenny Jackett will look to build a side capable of gaining promotion to the Championship having suffered a second consecutive failure to do so.

Whilst a number of players could arrive at Fratton Park, some are also set to leave and it has now been confirmed that Haunstrup has completed a free transfer to Kilmarnock.

The 23-year-old defender, whose contract ended in June, was said to have rejected fresh terms shortly after the penalty shoot-out defeat to Oxford in the play-off semi final.

Confirmation of his move to Scotland was released via Kilmarnock’s official website with the club confirming that the £45,000 valued defender had signed a two-year deal.

The 23-year-old, who is expected to compete with left sided defender Calum Waters, spoke after the completion of his move, saying: “The move has been in the pipeline for a little while and I couldn’t wait to get up here and I’m delighted it is all sorted.

“As a player, I’m energetic and like getting forward and I’m happy playing left back or as a wing back. The manager, coaching staff and players all seem great and I can’t wait to get started.”

Haunstrup appeared just 10 times in the league for Portsmouth last season whilst also featuring in the two-legged semi-final with Oxford.

Haunstrup’s move to Kilmarnock will offer Jackett the chance to find a new left sided defender but with a potential salary cap, the Pompey boss may need to have a closer look at his academy players first.

One thing is for sure, Portsmouth need to bring in the right type of player to avoid any such disappointment next term.
