Portsmouth are ‘unlikely‘ to offer former Swansea City winger Mason Jones-Thomas a contract despite his trial at the club.
With the new season fast approaching, Pompey manager Kenny Jackett is seeking to improve his squad after failing to gain promotion from League One to the Championship last term.
Despite the summer transfer window being open, just two new players have come into Fratton Park so far, with Sean Raggett agreeing a move following his exit from Championship side Norwich City and Cameron Pring coming in from Bristol City on loan.
Portsmouth, who faced AFC Totton last week, handed trialist Jones-Thomas some minutes ahead of what looked possible like turning into a potential summer move.
The 19-year-old featured in a right-wing role for Pompey, playing a total of 55 minutes which saw the teenager win Portsmouth’s second penalty at the Snows Stadium, which was converted by Alfie Stanley.
It seems that Portsmouth are going to head into the new season with just two new signings and that could leave fans wondering just how the campaign could finish.
Two consecutive play-off failures have resulted in increased desperation to finally get back into the Championship and Jackett’s transfer business is likely to be judged throughout the season, especially if he is unable to bring in many more new faces.
