Midfielder set for Portsmouth departure after injury hit spell

Portsmouth midfielder Bryn Morris is nearing the Fratton Park exit gate provided he can regain his fitness as reported by the Portsmouth News.

Morris signed a two-and-a-half-year deal at Pompey in January, but he’s failed to settle on the South Coast following his move from League One rivals Shrewsbury Town.

He joined Salop from Middlesbrough in January 2017 and spent the first half of last season on loan at Wycombe Wanderers, scoring three goals in twenty-one outings for the Chairboys.

The twenty-three-year-old has also suffered from ongoing injury problems since his arrival and is still struggling to recover from a troublesome groin problem that first surfaced in March.

He did make an appearance during pre-season in a friendly against Irish side UCD and was due to play in the final warm-up game against Woking but was forced to withdraw on the morning of the match.

The Portsmouth News is now claiming if Morris can prove his fitness before the transfer window closes on 2 September manager Kenny Jackett will allow him to leave the club.

Our View

Injury is a footballers nightmare, and together with a relocation that is not working out, it makes sense for Pompey to cut their losses and allow Morris to leave.

He showed during a loan spell at Wycombe that he is a good League One player and we can only hope he finds his fitness and can flourish at a new club.

If he gets fit, he would be a good signing for someone, despite having not endeared himself to many of the Pompey faithful.

The report is not clear whether it would be a loan away from the club, but it seems to imply they would let him go permanently if the right offer came in.
