With just ten days to go until the January transfer window slams shut, Portsmouth could still be on the hunt for certain players to improve their defensive ranks.
Pompey have already been busy shopping this January, with no less than three new players coming into the club; Cameron McGeehan, Steve Seddon and Reeco Hackett-Fairchild.
Despite the new recruits, Kenny Jackett has identified a couple more positions where he wants to strengthen, but it remains to be seen whether that will come to fruition as the window draws nearer to its close.
Centre-half and right-back are two areas that been touted as positions of choice that Jackett will want to look to bolster in order for Pompey to push up the table and realise their promotion ambitions.
Here, we look at two transfer deals that Portsmouth can realistically get done within the next couple of days.
Dimitri Cavare – Barnsley
After Anton Walkes’s departure to Atlanta United earlier on in the transfer window, Kenny Jackett will be looking to strengthen in the right-back position.
The 22-year-old Barnsley defender has been linked with Portsmouth throughout January, but in order for Pompey to get their man, they may have to part with some cash.
The Guadeloupe international has featured just a total of eleven times this season for Barnsley, and the player may also want out.
If Portsmouth are serious about the deal, they could get it over the line before the end of the week.

Dion Sanderson – Wolves
The highly rated youngster could still be what Portsmouth are looking for at centre-back, as it was reported by Football Insider that the club had made contact with Wolves over a potential deal.
That would likely be a loan rather than a permanent transfer, but regardless of that, if Kenny Jackett was to continue to pursue the 20-year-old, he may find Portsmouth an attractive proposition.
A right-footed centre-half, Sanderson has made just one appearance for Wolves so far in his career, and a move to Fratton Park could be good for his development.
