Transfer Gossip: Portsmouth in battle with Peterborough and Burton for Cheltenham's Ryan Broom
Pompey are keeping an eye on Cheltenham’s Ryan Broom.
That’s according to Gloucester Live, who claim the Blues face competition from Burton and Peterborough for the 23-year-old midfielder.
The report says that Posh boss Darren Ferguson was at Whaddon Road on Tuesday night to take in the Robins’ 3-0 win over Macclesfield in League Two.
Broom’s performance saw him named man of the match, with a goal and assist recorded in the convincing victory.
That took his personal tally for the season to six goals and four assists as the League One trio weigh up a January move for the former Bristol Rovers man.
Broom has been playing in a No10 role for Cheltenham this season but played most of last season at right-wing-back.
He’s made 63 appearances for the Robins following his release by Rovers at the end of the 2017-18 season and signed a new two-year contract in the summer.
The Newport-born ace played 13 times for Eastleigh in the 2017-18 season during a loan spell at the Silverlake Stadium.
