Former Swansea City winger Mason Jones-Thomas featured for Portsmouth against AFC Totton on Tuesday evening ahead of a potential move to the club.
With the new 2020/2021 season fast approaching, Pompey boss Kenny Jackett is under a wealth of pressure to improve his squad after failing to gain promotion from League One to the Championship for a second successive season.
Just one summer recruit has so far arrived with Sean Raggett agreeing a move following his exit from Championship side Norwich City.
With pre-season fixtures coming thick and fast, Portsmouth faced AFC Totton on Tuesday and the inclusion of a former Swansea City player has now seen a transfer link develop.
Portsmouth were held by the non-league side and Jones-Thomas featured in a right-wing role for the Blues, playing a total of 55 minutes.
The 19-year-old won Pompey’s second penalty at the Snows Stadium, which was converted by Alfie Stanley.
Jones-Thomas is now available on a free transfer after leaving Swansea’s under-23 setup and the report of his inclusion in Portsmouth’s side has been followed by a claim that he would link up with Pompey’s second string if he arrived at Fratton Park.
As mentioned in the report, if the 19-year-old does arrive at Portsmouth then he will initially go into the youth team at Fratton Park.
Indeed, the club are already well stocked in the right-midfield/right-wing position with Ryan Williams, Gareth Evans and Marcus Harness all available to Jackett.
Given he is available on a free though, he may be worth offering a contract to so that the club can take a closer look at him over the course of the campaign.
Do you think Jones-Thomas would be a good addition to the club? Let us know in the comments section below…
