Leeds United fans may well remember that back in May we were linked with Portsmouth’s talented winger Jamal Lowe.
With us looking to add goals to our attacking play for obvious reasons next season, having missed out on League One Play-Off promotion themselves as they suffered defeat to Sunderland, 24-year-old Lowe was always going to feature on the rumour mill owing to his performances and return of 17 goals and eight or nine assists depending on which reports you read.
It’s now been claimed that the player is definitely off this summer as Portsmouth look to cash in with him only having 12 months left on his contract, and although the original speculation suggested £2million could be the price, even at the now claimed £3million, for me he’d still be a bargain and a useful option.
At that fee, even if he doesn’t have a great season counting Championship football on his CV would only see his price rise anyway.
With the report linking a number of clubs to him though, Portsmouth will be hoping for a bidding war and that might count against us, so if Marcelo Bielsa or Victor Orta do have him on their shortlist, a quick and speedy move might be wise here.
