Portsmouth in transfer tussle with Wigan Athletic for impressive 22-year-old



Wigan and Portsmouth are among a number of clubs closely watching 22-year-old Josh Yorwerth, according to the Daily Mail.

Yorwerth has been an integral part of the team since Harry Kewell was appointed as manager with 29 league appearances out of a possible 34.

Out of the five games he missed, Crawley only picked up four points out of a potential 15, so he has certainly had a positive impact on the team with the team currently sitting in ninth place in League Two.

The youngster joined Crawley in 2016 as a free agent after being on loan at the club from Ipswich Town. He has improved every season with consistent gametime, but he has made the biggest leaps in development this season, which has attracted interest from multiple clubs including Championship sides.

He signed a three-year deal in September, but that may not be enough to stop a potential move in the summer especially because he has the chance to move up divisions if Crawley don’t get promoted.

Wigan currently sit in third place in League One, but have three games in hand on the two teams above them. Portsmouth, on the other hand, are on the hunt for the play-offs as they sit two points outside of it in ninth place.

Although Charlton have two games in hand in sixth place which could see them extend the gap. Regardless, neither side is at risk of relegation.

The Verdict

At least one of the Wigan and Portsmouth is likely to be in the automatic promotion spots or the play-offs by the end of the season, so the remaining games of the season are a great opportunity for Yorwerth to showcase his talent.

A move up one or two divisions would be great for his career while also having the potential to be a bargain for either club or the other sides after him.
