The Blues have been linked with the 16-goal striker as they seek to bolster their promotion-chasing squad following the opening of the transfer window.

Exeter today announced '˜several' club's have triggered a set-fee release clause in the 25-year-old's contract.

Stockley's price has been mooted as £750,000.

However, Jackett rejected the idea that Pompey are involved in trying to recruit their former loanee.

He said: '˜Like everybody, we want to come out of the transfer window stronger than we went in.

'˜It's not always easy, but we will be attempting to do that.

'˜We haven't made an approach for him (Stockley), though, he's not one we are looking at.'
