Dan Potts prepared for the final game of his Pompey loan spell tomorrow and admitted: I may return in the future.
The 19-year-old defender has played five games for the Blues and played under three different managers since arriving from West Ham last month.
He looks set to return to Upton Park this weekend after playing his final game.
But Potts has not ruled out the prospect of coming back, having enjoyed his stay – despite not yet being on the winning side.
The left-back said: ‘I would be open to returning.
‘At this stage of my career, I want to play games, no matter where it is.
‘I want to play first-team games and I’ve enjoyed every minute of that here.
‘It has been a great opportunity and a great experience.
‘At the moment, I am just focused on this game at Bristol Rovers and after the game, we will discuss it then.
‘We are all focused on getting the three points.’
Potts, who made six first-team appearances for the Hammers last term, is desperate to play first-team football.
He said: ‘First-team football is a must at my age now.
‘So it was definitely the right time for me to get out playing games.
‘The fans have been terrific. At any other club in League Two, you would not get that side of it and it was a major part of why I came in the first place.
‘It has definitely benefited me being here.
‘There’s nothing like playing in front of a big crowd.’
He does admit, however, his disappointment at results.
Potts said: ‘It’s a results business. It’s been good for me experience-wise but you want to be winning games, no matter what age you are.’
