Portsmouth: Ross County youngster Josh Reid emerges as potential signing - Portsmouth Transfer Rumours

Portsmouth have been showing interest in Ross County defender Josh Reid, according to a report in the Press and Journal.

Kenny Jackett has a number of key decisions to make between now and the end of the transfer window as Pompey aim to get out of League One next season after two failed play-off attempts.

Little transfer activity has developed at Fratton Park, with Sean Raggett from Norwich City the only arrival whilst Christian Burgess, Luke McGee, Brandon Haunstrup and Oli Hawkins have all departed.

With the 2020/21 season fast approaching, left-back Reid has now been linked with the Fratton Park club. The 18-year-old made a breakthrough at Ross County last season, making five appearances in the Scottish Premiership after developing through the club’s youth academy.

The Dingwall-born defender is contracted to the Premiership outfit until the summer of 2021 and is valued by Transfermarkt at £45,000.

A potential move for the youngster would see Jackett bolster his defensive options, with Lee Brown currently the only recognised left-back in his squad.

A move for an inexperienced teenage defender seems unlikely to get pulses racing among the Fratton Park faithful, particularly with little transfer activity so far in this window.

Reid may be a prospect but it will probably take more than his possible arrival to generate excitement among Pompey fans who are desperate to see them finally clinch promotion to the Championship – something which could be an uphill challenge unless they strengthen significantly over the coming weeks.
