Portsmouth striker Conor Chaplin has said that he doesn’t want to ‘play his football anywhere other than’ Fratton Park.

The 18-year-old academy graduate who was the LFE League Two Apprentice of the Year last season signed his first professional contract, a one-year deal with Pompey over the summer.

He recently grabbed the headlines by scoring against Championship sides Derby and Reading in the Capital One Cup and followed-up on that feat by hitting a double in the club’s 3-1 win over Barnet last Saturday after being handed his first league start of the campaign.

“I don’t want to be playing my football anywhere else, that’s all I’ve got to say on that,” he told BBC Radio Solent.

“I knew an opportunity to start a league game would come, I just had to be patient,” he added.

“When those opportunities come, you’ve got to take them in football. If you do, you’ll have a more successful time in the game.”

Portsmouth remain the only unbeaten team in League Two.
