​Released Villa defender opts for Portsmouth

League Two Portsmouth have signed Enda Stevens on a two-year deal after the defender was released by Aston Villa.

The 24-year-old left-back played only nine games for Villa after signing from Shamrock Rovers in 2012.

"Enda brings a lot of quality and adds balance to the left-hand side," manager Paul Cook told the club website.

The Republic of Ireland under-21 international rejected other offers from League One clubs before opting to join Pompey.

"This was a no-brainer because of the size of the club and the manager's aspirations for it," he said.

"It's easy to forget that this is a League Two club when you walk around the place and hopefully we can start to move back up the divisions."
