Pompey have yet to receive a bid from Sheffield Wednesday for David Norris.
However, The News understands the Championship newcomers are intent on capturing the 31-year-old and intend to firm up their interest.
Norris has accepted he has played his last game for the Blues as the club seek to reduce their wage bill.
Owls boss Dave Jones intends to add the goalscoring midfielder to his squad after recently capturing former Pompey loanee Joe Mattock.
As it stands, though, administrator Trevor Birch said: ‘We have yet to hear anything from Sheffield Wednesday over David Norris.
‘I’m not sure what the situation is with that. That’s how football seems to work.’
