Portsmouth appear to have failed in their attempts to keep hold of Brandon Haunstrup, who is set for a move to Kilmarnock, according to Portsmouth News.
Featuring 10 times in League One for Pompey over the course of the 2019/20 season, the left-back had largely impressed, playing a part in the club’s qualification for the play-offs, where penalty shoot-out defeat to Oxford ended their hopes of promotion.
Kilmarnock manager Alex Dyer is reportedly keen to add extra quality to his side ahead of the new season and Haunstrup has now reportedly penned a deal to move to the Scottish Premiership club.
Valued at £45,000 by Transfermarkt, the defender made his debut with Portsmouth in 2015 after coming through the club’s youth academy and having had loan spells with Bognor Regis Town and Sutton United.
His reported exit follows that of centre-back Christian Burgess, who left earlier this month to join Belgian side Union Saint-Gilloise.
Kenny Jackett will have to replace both Burgess and Haunstrup this summer and that could prove tricky, given the talent that both players had shown in a Portsmouth shirt.
Fans of the club will likely be hoping Jackett can agree some new player deals as soon as possible as the start of the 2020/21 season draws closer for Pompey.
