Portsmouth Football Club has today announced the signing of 21-year-old Myles Peart-Harris on an end-of-season loan from Premier League outfit Brentford.
Peart-Harris has been with The Bees since July 2021, when he signed for an undisclosed fee on a 4-year deal from London rivals Chelsea - The fee was reported to be around £1.4million.
The Isleworth-born attacking midfielder had been with Chelsea since the age of 8 but never made a first team appearance, although did feature for the club's Under-21s side in the EFL Trophy.
During the 2021/22 Premier League season, Peart-Harris was named as a substitute in 8 of Brentford's matchday squads and made 2 appearances in cup competitions. That same campaign, he was part of the B Team's London Senior Cup winning squad.
In 2022, the midfielder joined Forest Green Rovers on a loan deal until January - After 25 appearances and 4 goals, that loan was extended until the end of the season.
Blues boss John Mousinho said: "Myles is a skilful and powerful attacking midfield player who we're delighted to bring to the club.
"He has experience of playing at this level and the fact he has also appeared in the Premier League this season, shows his pedigree."
Myles Peart-Harris had featured in 3 separate top flight matches for The Bees since December, coming off the bench in games against Luton Town, Brighton & Hove Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Mousinho concluded: "I'm looking forward to working with Myles for the rest of the season and am grateful to Brentford for loaning him to us."
Peart-Harris becomes Pompey's second signing of the January transfer window, joining goalkeeper Matt Macey in putting pen-to-paper on a deal at Fratton Park.
Championship side Queens Park Rangers were also reportedly interested in securing his services.
