Portsmouth have missed out on the signing of Cameron McGeehan who has left Barnsley to join Belgian side KV Oostende.
Kenny Jackett’s Pompey side missed out on promotion to the Championship last term after losing on penalties to Oxford United in the play-off semi-finals.
McGeehan, who was part of that side, missed the fateful spot kick before returning to parent club Barnsley this summer as his loan deal came to an end.
However, any hope of signing the midfielder this summer has now been ended after an announcement by Barnsley that he has signed for Belgian side KV Oostende.
Failure to lure McGeehan back to Pompey will be a sour one for Kenny Jackett as he looks to improve his squad ahead of next season.
Barnsley opted to thank McGeehan for his efforts via their official website, writing: “Everyone at Oakwell would like to thank Cameron for his efforts and wish him well for the future.”
Well, what can you say. McGeehan obviously had a better offer on the table and felt more intrigued to play in Belgium than in League One again.
Jackett must instantly look to identify and make a move for a replacement as the new season begins to edge closer and closer.
Do you think Portsmouth should have done more to sign McGeehan? Let us know in the comments section below…
