Jack Whatmough is back in training, as shown in a video posted on Portsmouth’s official Twitter page.
The 23-year-old has been injured since he was forced off 29 minutes into a 1-1 draw against Doncaster Rovers in February, as per Transfermarkt, though the video indicates he is now getting closer to stepping back on the pitch:

Many Portsmouth fans are delighted to see Whatmough taking the next steps of his recovery, with the former England youth international having made his impact at Pompey in the past.
Despite his fight with injury, Whatmough has already represented the club 96 times, having come through the academy to make his debut in 2013.
The video may not have actually shown Whatmough doing that much, but seeing him out on the grass is enough to bring plenty of Pompey fans excitement.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the video, including posts from enthused Portsmouth fans, can be seen below:
