Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett has revealed that they are still considering offering James Meredith a deal and wouldn’t rule out further incomings before Monday’s deadline.
The south coast side have endured a pretty tough start to the campaign and despite starting the season as one of the promotion favourites, they are 16th in the table with just one league win.
However, an impressive 2-0 success at QPR last night in the League Cup, which has seen them draw rivals Southampton in the next round, has lifted spirits.
And, there could be more reasons for positivity in the coming days, with BBC reporter Andrew Moon revealing that new signings could be brought in after speaking to the manager today, whilst no departures are likely.
“Jackett says they’re still looking at James Meredith and he’s likely to at least play in some behind close doors games for #Pompey to assess him. Unlikely to be any further departures from #Pompey before the window closes, a further addition can’t be ruled out though.”
Pompey face a tough trip to high-flying Blackpool this weekend as they look to climb the League One table.
Meredith would be a decent signing for Portsmouth as he would give them experience and he would provide depth in something of a problem position for the side.
It is also good for the fans to hear that no exits are likely because things need to settle down after a pretty turbulent summer.
Jackett often remains coy when talking about transfers so his comments suggest he expects some new faces in and it will be interesting to see if anything happens beyond Meredith in the coming days.
