The defender has been without a club for more than a year after leaving Aberdeen in May 2019.

Halford, who scored 12 goals in 77 appearances during his two-year spell at Fratton Park, trained with League Two outfit Walsall earlier this year but failed to win a contract.

He also offered his services to Kenny Jackett in February 2019 but was denied a Blues return ahead of his switch to Aberdeen.
