Pompey forward is once again linked with Leeds United

Portsmouth forward Jamal Lowe is being eyed by Leeds United, but they face competition for the forward’s signature from Championship rivals.

Sky Sports is claiming that Wigan Athletic and Cardiff City are also ready to give Lowe the opportunity of stepping up a level and playing in the second tier of the EFL.

It is no surprise the versatile Lowe is attracting plenty of summer interest after an outstanding season for Pompey. He netted seventeen times in fifty-five appearances as Portsmouth just fell short of winning promotion to the Championship, losing on aggregate to Sunderland in the playoff semi-final.

Leeds were also linked with Lowe in a report earlier this week in the Daily Star.

According to Sky Sports, Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett would love to keep Lowe at Fratton Park, but if Pompey receives a bid of around £2m, he would be tempted to sell his leading scorer.

Lowe signed a new two-year deal at Fratton Park in January 2018 after joining the club from non-league Hampton and Richmond in 2017.

The twenty-four-year-old can play on either wing and through the middle. Lowe is not just a goalscorer illustrated by contributing nine assists to his seventeen goals in the 2018/19 season.


Our View

Lowe is a real talent, and at £2m someone is going to get a bargain.

Leeds would be an excellent stage for his skills, and he is being linked almost daily with a move to Yorkshire.

This one looks like it works for all parties as a move would give Jackett money to re-shape his the squad for another assault on League One next season

  1. I had the pleasure of watching him play for my home team Hampton before he went to Portsmouth and wasn’t surprised he did so well there. I think Leeds would do well to take him
