Portsmouth defender Christian Burgess is subject to interest from Belgian side Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, according to journalist Dave Peters.
28-year-old centre-back Burgess has been a key figure at Fratton Park since his arrival in 2015 but his time at the club may now be set to end.
With his contract coming to an end this summer, the defender could end on a high note as Portsmouth look to gain promotion to the Championship via the League One play-offs.
Making 32 appearances this term, Burgess’ performances have impressed with RUSG now showing interest in him and with Portsmouth struggling to agree terms on a new deal, it now seems that an exit is likely.
Writing on Twitter, Peters said: ‘Union remains active in the transfer market. Now central defender Christian Burgess also comes from third division Portsmouth. Do signatures of Morris, Lapoussin and Perbet follow? #proximusleague #union #sources.’
Union Saint-Gilloise finished fourth in Belgium’s second tier last term and are looking to build a side worthy of promotion next term.
If Portsmouth gain promotion to the Championship, they would undoubtedly be sad to see Burgess leave the club.
The defender has been a consistently good performer this term, helping the team keep 13 clean sheets in the league whilst also chipping in with three goals. He will be extremely hard to replace if he does move on to pastures new.
