The Bulgarian is training with the Blues after leaving League One rivals Burton Albion.

But Kenny Jackett has denied a move is imminent for Blackburn defender Paul Downing.

Pompey have been linked with Downing, who is available after falling down the defensive pecking order at Ewood Park.

Jackett said: '˜No, we've got Bryn signing on Monday but Paul Downing, no.

'˜We have Evtimov who played against us for Burton.

'˜He's been in on trial with Luke McGee out injured. He's a free agent.'
