Pompey have turned down the option of signing triallist Paul Paton
But Kenny Jackett has revealed he will not be looking to add the out-of-contract Northern Ireland international to his squad.
The Pompey boss said: He's somebody we looked at.
'We won't be pursuing it, but he was somebody we looked at in the early part of the week.
'We look at a number of triallists, people who are either out of contract or people who are soon to be out of contract in the summer.
'We use this period to have a look at different people and see whether they are for us in the summer.'
