Danny Cowley offers update on future of Portsmouth mainstay as exit looms



Portsmouth boss Danny Cowley has offered an update on the future of Tom Naylor with it looking likely, as things stand, that the player is going to be leaving Portsmouth on a free transfer this summer.

Portsmouth are in a period of transition by the looks of things, with the Cowley brothers getting their first summer window in charge of the club and, naturally, they’ll be wanting to make changes to the squad.

Indeed, Pompey also appear to be needing to get some players off of the wage bill or at least reduce it and, in the case of Naylor, he has been offered a deal to extend his stay at Fratton Park that he has rejected.

Right now, then, he’s on course to leave the club after proving a real mainstay in the side, though Cowley has said ‘never say never’ as regards Naylor’s future, as quoted by Pompey reporter Andrew Moon:

The Verdict

Naylor was a massive presence last season for Portsmouth in their side as they challenged for the play-offs.

Clearly, losing him would mean the club needs to get a replacement that is reliable and robust enough to be playing week in, week out, and it remains to be seen just how they go about getting such a player.

Of course, Cowley’s update suggests there’s still a slight chance that Naylor could end up staying at Fratton Park but, right now, it seems pretty likely that he’s going to be moving onto pastures new this summer.
