However, Pompey are well stocked when it comes to wingers.

Marcus Harness and Ryan Williams have battled for the spot on the right flank this season, while Ronan Curtis is undisputed first choice on the opposite side.

The Blues also have Reeco Hackett-Fairchild, who arrived from Bromley in January, while Gareth Evans is also capable of operating out wide.

That's why Jackett says it’s unlikely Pompey will sign another winger this summer.

He said: ‘He’s a wide-right player and we have Ryan Williams and Marcus Harness on our books.

‘It is very unlikely that we will sign another wide-right player. We’re well stocked there with players under contract.’
