L1 Round-up: Bid lodged for Portsmouth ace, Rotherham offer knocked back & Lincoln want Championship player



It’s been another busy 24 hours in League One, with clubs being linked with players as well as a couple of new signings.

We round-up the very latest news and rumours, starting with a confirmed deal for one of last season’s promotion challengers.

Josh Pask

Coventry City have confirmed the signing of West Ham defender Josh Pask, as revealed by their club website.

The 21-year-old, who has previously enjoyed spells with Gillingham and Dagenham, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal following his release by the Hammers.

He’s a 6ft 2in defender, versatile with an obvious aerial presence but who failed to break through in East London.

Matt Clarke

Portsmouth defender Matt Clarke is the subject of a £3m bid from Premier League side Brighton, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old played 48 matches for Portsmouth last season, ever-present in the league and play-offs, but has looked likely to leave following their failure to achieve promotion.

He began his career with Ipswich Town and has 175 outings to his name in all competitions

Jorge Grant

Jorge Grant FA Cup action

Nottingham forest’s tricky attacker Jorge Grant has been linked with a loan move to League One, as exclusively revealed to Football League World.

Lincoln City, newcomers to the division, are credited with an interest, as are Oxford United.

Grant has previously enjoyed loan spells with Notts County, Luton Town and Mansfield Town.

David Ball

Blackpool are reported to be interested in striker David Ball, recently released by Rotherham United.

The 29-year-old is a former Fleetwood man but it’s reported they’re not interested in acquiring his services. He scored 49 times for them in 209 outings before leaving in 2017.

He spent last season in League One with Bradford City, where he nabbed five goals in 35 outings before their relegation.

Dru Yearwood

The 19-year-old Southend sensation is a target for Rotherham, who have seen a £200,000 bid rejected by Southend.

The central midfielder appeared 33 times for the Shrimpers this season, earning a call up to England Under 18s. The Millers bid has been rejected, but there is no shortage of potential suitors.

Millwall, QPR, Bristol City and Middlesbrough are all thought to covet the midfielder.
