Kenny Jackett has reiterated that Jamal Lowe is not for sale.
That doesn't mean he won't move on - but it all hangs on whether any of the Championship clubs reported to be interested in the winger make offers high enough for Pompey's board to consider a deal.
Millwall and Wigan are both said to be keen to land Pompey's top scorer of last season and Jackett told The News: 'There have been two bids for Jamal this week – and we have turned those bids down. Whether there are going to be increased ones, I don’t know, but obviously for the board of directors the amount wasn’t enough.
‘I am always kept informed, but they don’t make the bids to me, it is done at boardroom level and done correctly and properly, that is the way it should be. Obviously nobody is looking to try to sell Jamal this summer, he is not a player that is for sale. But he is someone a lot of clubs are interested in, hence the bids.’
Jackett added: ‘Jamal has been informed of the bids being turned down – and is okay. In terms of discussions, there are a certain amount of things which should stay private between a player and a manager. There is a lot to consider in those situations.’
