He's at a club who have just won the Scottish Cup - now could St Johnstone striker Guy Melamed be Pompey-bound?.
The St Johnstone striker says he is flattered by interest shown in him by a number of clubs - widely reported to include Pompey - but hasn’t ruled out staying with the Saints.
The Israeli scored seven goals in 23 appearances for Callum Davidson’s side, but was an unused substitute on Saturday as the Saints claimed a cup double with a win 1-0 agains Hibs at Hampden Park.
The 28-year-old is out of contract following the conclusion of the Scottish season and he told the Daily Record: ‘I heard from my agent. He told me there is interest. It's very flattering to me. I'll have to sit down with my agent and look at all the proposals.
‘I will return home. I will be with my family, I will enjoy some of the time in the country because I have not been there for many months. I will examine the proposals and decide what is the best place for me.
‘I do not rule out (Israel), but on the other hand my direction is to continue abroad.’
When asked about his St Johnstone future, Melamed told the paper: ‘It's an amazing place that has given me the opportunity to introduce myself in Europe and I hope we can bridge our gaps in negotiations and conditions. We have put together a legendary season, the best season in the history of the club and the club wants all the staff to continue. I strongly believe in the club.’
