The recruitment drive, which has seen 10 players commit their future to Pompey since the end of the season, is expected to continue with another couple of players potentially signing within the next 24-hours?
Among them, as The News reports, is going to be a genuine left-sided winger...
Quite clearly this is something that Guy Whittingham wants: 'we didn't have width last season and need two creators on the outside - players who can also be flexible in other positions.
'Last season we had Shaun Cooper, Liam Walker and Jed Wallace but they would see themselves as central-midfield players rather than on the left or right.
'They did a great job for us, especially Jed - but he is not a winger.
'We need someone who can help create in and around the 18-yard box and you also need pace everywhere.'
Both players, unidentified at this moment, seem as though they are wide players from the other quotes given by Whittingham in The News this morning - with this left winger arriving as early as today?
Answers from David Connolly and Johnny Ertl, both offered new contracts, are also expected this week...
Fingers crossed both commit as they showed just how influential they are!
If they do that would give us great experience and leadership qualities, with both always wanted. It is always good to have an experienced pro right through the spine of the side from central defence to attack - we might be slightly lacking in experience in that defensive area but with a return for either Rocha John Rocha or Sam Sodje not ruled out, it is still possible that this experienced spine throughout could still take shape?
It continues to be an exciting time at Pompey doesn't it!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
