But the Blues are not looking to push the striker out of the door as the countdown to tonight’s 11pm deadline gathers pace.

The 32-year-old has been attracting interest from Swindon this month, with Plymouth also mentioned as a possible destination.

But if there was any late interest which suited all parties Pompey would allow the former skipper to leave.
