Portsmouth’s Kenny Jackett has stated that there have been some enquiries for Adam May since returning from an unsuccessful loan spell at Swindon.
May wasn’t used much at Swindon and featured just 13 times, with only five of the appearances coming from the start of a match.
The 22-year-old is now set to represent the under-23 side in a match with Doncaster on Tuesday night.
He’s unable to play in the EFL Trophy game with Scunthorpe tonight as it would mean that he would have played for two sides in the Football League already this season, meaning he couldn’t go on loan and represent a third.
Jackett has expressed that here have been a couple of enquiries here and there but nothing substantial that suggests May will leave anytime soon.
Speaking to the Portsmouth News, Jackett said: “Adam is back with us, back training and will play for our under-23s tonight at Havant & Waterloville.
“There have been some enquiries into his agent and to the club, but there is nothing concrete yet.
“We’re just waiting if maybe it’s this or maybe it’s that.”

May clearly isn’t in Jackett’s current plans, and it’s important that he can find a home where he can get sufficient play time and be able to develop enough to give himself a chance of getting in the Pompey team.
He didn’t get enough game time at Swindon, and sometimes manager’s should let their players go even lower just to get regular matches against men under their belt.
He made his debut for Portsmouth in 2015, and since hasn’t quite gone onto have the career he’d have hoped for, although there is still time to turn a corner.
Portsmouth don’t necessarily need him at this point in time but if he can leave and get some more experience then there’s no reason why he can’t come back a player willing to compete for a place at Fratton Park.
