Former Crystal Palace forward Khassal joins Portsmouth

Former Crystal Palace forward Cherelle Khassal has completed a move to Portsmouth according to reports on the club’s official website.

The 30-year-old Republic of Ireland international forward joins Pompey on a free transfer after leaving former club Crystal Palace at the end of last season.

Khassal spent two years as a Crystal Palace player in which she scored six goals in 29 FA Women’s Championship appearances.

Khassal’s move to the FA Women’s National League South was confirmed by Portsmouth earlier today. When commenting on the move, the forward said “I’m really happy to be here. It’s great to get everything over the line and I can’t wait to get the season started.

“I’m looking forward to working with Jay Sadler. He’s driven, he’s really passionate and he wants the club to go in all of the right directions.”

Khassal is set to begin her third spell as a Portsmouth player. She was previously on the club’s books as a youth before briefly going on to represent Pompey at senior level in 2014.

The player can also count Brighton & Hove Albion, Lewes and Chichester City amongst her former clubs while Khassal has played overseas in Portugal, in the United States and in her native Republic of Ireland.
