But Pompey are happy to keep the homegrown player, who has made 19 appearances this season, at Fratton Park.

The News understands their League One rivals are keen on the 23-year-old, although that’s been denied by manager Sam Garner.

Kenny Jackett has also made it clear he’s not looking to move on the Waterlooville talent before tonight’s 11pm deadline.

Rovers have been busy in the transfer market this month.

Jamal Blackman (Chelsea), Josh Ginnelly (Preston), Jayden Mitchell-Lawson (Derby), Timmy Abraham (Fulham) and Josh Barrett (Reading) are recent additions to the Gas squad and it remains to be seen if they will make a late return to test the water over Haunstrup.

The left-back, who has also operated at right-back for Pompey this season, wasn’t part of the Blues match-day squad that travelled to Lincoln in midweek.
