Sowah was offered a new deal after impressing at the end of last season

Out-of-contract Portsmouth defender Lenny Sowah has joined Bundesliga side Hamburg on a free transfer.

The 17-year-old left-back leaves Fratton Park after rejecting a deal to play in the Championship next term.

Pompey will be due training compensation for the player as he is under the age of 23.

The German-Ghanaian, who grew up in Hamburg, joined Pompey in 2007, and made five first-team appearances at the end of last season.
