Portsmouth are interested in Southampton’s Josh Sims, who will be a free agent when he leaves the Premier League club in the summer.

The 24-year-old, who can play across the forward line, had featured for the Saints over the years, although he had failed to get a look-in under the current boss, so he spent that past few seasons out on loan. Sims’ most recent spell was with Doncaster in League One, where he generally impressed.
Nevertheless, with his contract expiring in the summer, the player will be on the move and Portsmouth News reporter Will Rooney has revealed that a switch to Fratton Park is on the cards.
Interestingly, the update claims that Sims has no issues about moving to Southampton’s bitter rivals, but the update does claim that there are others monitoring Sims.
8 of these 20 players never scored a goal for Portsmouth – Can you identify them?
Despite his connections to Saints, it’s fair to say most Pompey fans aren’t bothered. Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
