Portsmouth have confirmed the departure of midfielder Adam May, who has joined National League side Boreham Wood until the end of the current season.
It will be May’s fifth loan spell away from Pompey, with the player currently not in Kenny Jackett’s first-team plans.
The 22-year-old was at League Two side Swindon Town for the first half of the campaign but failed to feature on a regular basis for the Wiltshire side, making thirteen appearances in total, scoring one goal.
Despite being recalled in January, the club have decided to send May elsewhere in the hope that he will get more first-team football under his belt.
QUIZ: Are these 15 ex-Portsmouth players still playing?
Boreham Wood currently occupy 5th place in the National League, and the Hertfordshire side are once again proving to be promotion contenders.
May came through Portsmouth’s youth academy, eventually making his debut in 2015 against Bury. He signed a professional contract that summer.
However, since then, May has managed a total of 29 further appearances for the south coast club over the course of five seasons.
The 22-year-old has not featured for Pompey in their last two League One campaigns. He last got a run-out for the club in an FA Cup replay defeat to QPR in February 2019.
This decision comes as no surprise, as May is far down the pecking order at Pompey under Kenny Jackett.
His career could be coming to a crossroads, as the 22-year-old will be desperate to settle at a club permanently and play regular football.
Despite coming through the Portsmouth academy, it has not worked out in recent years, and May will no doubt be looking at his options this summer.
