Key Portsmouth figure issues important update on 24-y/o’s future

Published

Portsmouth will be hoping they can find some much-needed momentum heading towards the conclusion of the season in League One. 

They’re currently sat fourth in the second tier standings, but are winless in their last three matches in all competitions, which makes for concerning reading at a crucial stage of the season.

One player that hasn’t had a chance to play his part in their push for promotion is Luke McGee, who joined League Two side Bradford City on loan for the remainder of this year’s campaign.

The shot-stopper made four appearances for the Bantams, before being demoted to the substitutes bench with Richard O’Donnell returning from injury.

Due to recent off-the-field events calling a halt to fixtures across the EFL, there had been concerns as to what the future holds for players that are out-of-contract in the summer, with McGee being one of those.

Speaking in an interview with The Portsmouth News, Pompey boss Kenny Jackett revealed that McGee will finish the season with Bradford City, and claimed that the goalkeeper is in ‘a bit of limbo’.

“Yes, he will (finish the season at Bradford). He’s in a bit of limbo and played initially when he first joined before they brought O’Donnell back into the side.

“Luke will be ticking over and waiting on information for when their season resumes and see if they can get promoted.”

“He’s behind two very good goalkeepers at Portsmouth and we’re pleased because it’s a strong department. For Luke, anyway, he is still young for a keeper and I believe has his best days ahead.”

The big forward is from Cameroon. True or false?

The Verdict: 

It’ll be interesting to see what the future holds for McGee heading into the summer.

He’s kept one clean sheet whilst out on loan with Bradford City, but now that Richard O’Donnell is back from injury, I can’t see McGee getting back into the Bantams’ starting XI anytime soon.

It seems difficult to imagine that he’ll have much of a future with Portsmouth either, especially if they’re to win promotion into the Championship this term.

I wouldn’t be surprised if McGee was to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of this year’s campaign.
