With the regular season wrapped up and attention now firmly focused on the play-offs, it will soon be time to start speculating who Kenny Jackett wants to bring in this summer.
The Portsmouth manager has the luck of having one of the best sides in League One and an owner with the funds to attract some big names to the south coast, and with some big teams relegated down to League Two this season, there are players out there who could be available on the cheap as well as bring more quality to Pompey, and one of those names is Plymouth Argyle defender Ryan Edwards.
According to the Sun via Football League World, Pompey are interested in the 25-year-old centre-back, and with the Pilgrims recently booking their ticket down to League Two with relegation confirmed on the final day of the season, Edwards could be a very cheap pick-up for Jackett this summer.
Despite being part of a side that has been relegated, Edwards has been one of Plymouth’s most impressive players this season, and his experience in League One will make him a desirable acquisition for teams in the division looking to bolster their backline, and Pompey should be making the defender a top priority regardless if they’re promoted or not.
Edwards would add needed experience and quality to an area of the pitch Portsmouth will need improving on next season, and the Plymouth man could be the defender to solve that problem for Jackett.
Portsmouth fans, would Edwards be a good summer signing? Let us know!
