Portsmouth: Leicester City defender emerges as summer target

Portsmouth: Leicester City defender emerges as summer target - Portsmouth Transfer Rumours

Portsmouth have registered interest in Leicester City defender Josh Knight, according to Portsmouth News.

Kenny Jackett is seemingly desperate to bolster his squad options ahead of next season after suffering a second successive promotion failure, losing to Oxford United in the League One play-off semi final.

That disappointment has now left Jackett with a huge task this summer and interest in players is beginning to be reported.

Portsmouth News were the first to report interest in Leicester’s Knight and that has now been followed up by a further claim.

Knight, who has recently returned to Leicester after spending time at Peterborough for the last one-and-a-half years, is expected to be shipped out on loan by the Premier League club.

The 22-year-old first joined the Posh on loan in January 2019 and since went on to make 24 appearances last term in League One.

His potential arrival could follow a move for Sean Raggett with a latest report claiming a deal for the former Norwich City defender is imminent.

Jackett has to get things right this summer and the Pompey boss will know that given the pressure he will be feeling after missing out on promotion.

Knight is an obvious talent and he could certainly add quality to the squad. Indeed despite primarily being a right-back he still chipped in with three goals and four assists in League One last season.

On paper, this looks like it would be a solid addition for the south coast outfit.

Do you think Knight will be a good signing for Portsmouth? Let us know in the comments section below…
