Steve Cotterill has emerged as a target for Birmingham City.
Reports suggest the Pompey boss is a leading contender for the vacant manager’s post at St Andrew’s.
City are searching for a replacement for Alex McLeish, who walked out on the Midlands club yesterday.
Relegated from the Premier League this season, Birmingham are reportedly seeking talks with Cotterill.
However, Billy Davies, Gianfranco Zola, Chris Hughton and Roberto Di Matteo are also in the frame.
Pompey are yet to comment, while Birmingham City insist no approach has been made.
