Portsmouth closing in on signing of 24-year-old from Championship club



Portsmouth are closing in on the signing of goalkeeper Daniel Gyollai from Peterborough United, a report from The Peterborough Telegraph has revealed.

Gyollai only joined Peterborough from Wigan Athletic last summer, signing a two-year deal at London Road.

However, the 24-year-old was transfer listed by Posh earlier this summer following their promotion to the Championship, having made just four appearances for the club, all of which came in last season’s EFL Trophy.

It was reported last week that Gyollai had turned down a move to Portsmouth, although it now seems as though the Hungarian could still join the south coast club this summer.

According to this latest update, Gyollai is set to travel to Portsmouth for talks about a deal on Tuesday.

Indeed, Peterborough director of football Barry Fry has confirmed that the club are happy to cancel Gyollai’s contract to allow him to negotiate a transfer with Pompey.

In what year were Portsmouth first elected into the Football League?

So far this summer, Portsmouth have made seven senior signings, with Ryan Tunnicliffe, Shaun Williams, Clark Robertson, Kieron Freeman and Jayden Reid joining permanently, while Gavin Bazunu and Gassan Ahadme have arrived on loan.

The Verdict

This does seem to be a promising update for Portsmouth.

Despite already signing one ‘keeper this summer with Bazunu moving on loan from Manchester City, it appears manager Danny Cowley is keen to add another ‘keeper to his side.

As a result, the fact that a move for Gyollai still appears to be on the cards is a good sign for Pompey, given it means Cowley will be getting the extra option he wants between the posts.

Indeed, having yet to really establish himself with any of his previous clubs, Gyollai may well see this as an opportunity to finally kick start his career in English football, particularly if he does complete a permanent move to Fratton Park.
