Bedeau came through the ranks at Bury before earning a move to Villa Park in Janaury 2017.

However, he failed to make a single first-team appearance for Villa and joined Scunny two years later.

This season, Bedeau scored once in 38 appearances as the Lincolnshire outfit narrowly avoided League Two relegation.

The 21-year-old is now a free agent and looking for a new club.

As things stand, Pompey have two centre-backs under contract ahead of the 2021-22 campaign in Sean Raggett and Paul Downing.

The Blues are in discussions to keep Jack Whatmough while Rasmus Nicolaisen has returned to FC Midtjylland following his season-long loan at Fratton Park.
