The 24-year-old, who scored eight goals for Leyton Orient as they were relegated from League Two last season, would be available on a free transfer.

He has exercised an option to leave the Brisbane Road club following their drop into the National League – despite signing a three-year deal in 2016.

According to Sky, Pompey will face competition from former boss Paul Cook, now at Wigan, and Bradford for Massey’s services.
