Kenny Jackett’s Portsmouth will no doubt be seeking to secure some last minute agreements as we head towards the end of the transfer window, with the League One promotion chasers seeking to strengthen their existing ranks before Friday’s deadline.
Currently sitting just shy of the play-off places, Jackett will no doubt be keen to bring in one or two players that could make that little bit of difference which is usually the difference between a draw and a win.
With games to come against the likes of Sunderland, Coventry and Fleetwood in the next few weeks, the former Millwall boss will be seeking to add some much needed reinforcements this month.
QUIZ: Can you name these 14 Portsmouth players just by looking at the clubs they have played for? See if you can get full marks down below!
Up to now the only players that have been brought in by the Fratton Park club are Steve Seddon, Cameron McGeehan and Reeco Hackett-Fairchild respectively.
Here, we take a look at ONE in and ONE out which could still happen at Portsmouth this transfer window….
The former Ipswich Town man is currently available as a free agent and is a player that Pompey could still look to bring in prior to Friday’s deadline, with the south coast club having previously registered an interest in securing the 29-year-old’s signature.
Capable of playing at left back and in the centre of defence, Smith would add an experienced, versatile option to Jackett’s current squad this month.
The New Zealand international would also prove to be a low cost addition in comparison to other targets as he would cost next to nothing for Pompey to bring in.
It remains to be seen if the League One club will resurrect a move for the defender this week, with talk having gone quiet over his next move of late.
The Pompey left back has been strongly linked with a departure to league rivals Bristol Rovers this term and could well be set to leave Fratton Park this week.
Haunstrup has been in and out of the team this season and could well leave for pastures new in search of more regular game time.
The defender’s departure wouldn’t leave Pompey short at the back, with the club having the aforementioned figure of Seddon and Lee Brown to call upon as options for the left back role.
Only time will tell whether Haunstrup departs the club this week, with competition for places being particularly high at present, he could well be heading for the exit.
