Portsmouth Chief Executive Officer Mark Catlin has revealed that his side are on the hunt for another player after sealing the signing of Michael Jacobs.
28-year-old Jacobs was released by Wigan Athletic earlier this summer and having previously worked with Pompey manager Kenny Jackett at Wolverhampton Wanderers, a deal has now been completed.
With the midfielder signing a two-year contract. Jacobs becomes Jackett’s fourth signing this summer, following Sean Raggett, Cameron Pring and Callum Johnson in making a move to the League One club.
With a fourth deal now and done and dusted, Catlin revealed that he wanted to add to Jacobs’ arrival before the transfer window closed on October 16.
Catling told The News: “We’ll just have to see how things pan out over the next few weeks, but you’re always in the market for players.
“You can get an injury at any moment. Or you can get a player who, for one reason or another, doesn’t feel happy at the club, maybe not playing, and wants a move.
“You always have to be on the lookout for new players – and we’re already looking out for players in January.
“These days you can’t have such big depth in your squad as you would normally because you’re limited this season to just 22 players that can actually be registered.”
Portsmouth’s opening game of the season did not end as Jackett would have liked with Shrewsbury Town holding them to a 0-0 draw at Fratton Park.
Pompey will now prepare to face Rochdale in league action this coming weekend following Thursday evening’s EFL Cup tie with Brighton and Hove Albion.
Finally after a number of weeks, Portsmouth look to be making some transfer moves.
Jacobs’ arrival will excite fans given that they have seen little forward thinking players arrive and it will be interesting to see who Catlin and Kenny Jackett have in mind to bring in next.
