Cardiff City striker Omar Bogle has revealed he’d be open to a summer move to Portsmouth, after speaking to portsmouth.co.uk.
The former Grimsby Town striker is currently on loan at Fratton Park, but has forced himself into the first team reckoning there and has been a key driver behind their recent resurgence.
They’re hot on the heels of Sunderland and Barnsley, with the EFL Trophy final also looming large.
That success, plus the influence of Kenny Jackett, has prompted him to reveal he’d consider a summer move.
“I would have to consider it (a move to Pompey). It is a big club, a good club and I get on really well with the gaffer,” he said.
Any move would certainly involve a fee, with Bogle joining Cardiff for £1m from Wigan Athletic. He made just ten league appearances for the Bluebirds, scoring three times.
He said he will discuss his future in the summer, but right now there’s one focus only.
“I’ll speak with the owner at Cardiff, who I get along really well with, and we’ll see what happens. At this moment, I’m just enjoying playing football again, to be honest. That’s all I’m thinking about, playing the best I can and helping the team get promoted.”
Bogle began his career at Solihull Moors, but made his name as part of the Grimsby Town team that won promotion from the National League in 2016.
Bogle has certainly found his level, he struggled on loan at Birmingham but has done well with Pompey.
If they went up, would he be sufficient? His Blues time says no, but he seemed unlucky not to get more of a crack at Cardiff. Three goals from four starts wasn’t a bad return.
