As expected, Portmouth midfielder Matt Ritchie has completed his permanent switch to Swindon Town.
The 21 year old native of Gosport started his career with Portsmouth where he was product of their Academy.
Ritchie's first taste of first team football occurred during the 2008/09 campaign during a season long loan at Dagenham and Redbridge where he scored an impressive 11 goals in 37 league outings.
The following season saw another successful League Two loan, this time it was with Notts County where he impressed throughout his 16 games (scoring 3 times). A brief loan spell at Swindon followed but he was recalled back to Pompey after only four substitute appearances with the club.
The early return to Portsmouth resulted in the youngster making his full Premier League debut in the 0-0 draw at Wigan Athletic. A cameo followed in the 2-1 loss to Aston Villa. Ritchie missed out of a place on the substitute bench for Portsmouth's F.A. Cup Final loss to Chelsea.
Ritchie started the 2010/11 campaign very much in the first team set-up at Fratton Park but after making his final appearance for Pompey as a late sub against Bristol City he re-joined Swindon on loan where he has impressed more-or-less throughouth (winning the Vital Swindon player of the month in October).
Matt Ritchie has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Town and manager Danny Wilson proclaimed that 'Matt's been a breath of fresh air for us, he's fantastic going forward and he's got boundless energy for a little fella... I'm delighted we've got it all tied up.'
