Jamal Lowe’s exit for Wigan is close to being finalised.
The Blues winger has travelled north today in anticipation of sealing a deal in excess of £2.5m to the Championship club.
That would mean Lowe being reunited with the man who brought him to Fratton Park in 2017 from non-league Hampton & Richmond, in Paul Cook.
The popular and likeable figure has gone on to clock up an impressive 119 appearances with the Blues in two-and-a-half years.
His potency increased significantly in that period as he bagged 30 goals and developed into a key player for Kenny Jackett’s side, culminating in firing in 17 efforts last season to finish as Pompey’s top scorer.
That return, of course, included his extra-time effort at Wembley in the Checkatrade Trophy final win over Sunderland.
Lowe now looks likely to be granted his wish to test himself at Championship level and earn a move which will significantly increase his earning power at the DW Stadium.
