Portsmouth confirm Reid interest

Portsmouth boss Andy Awford has confirmed the club are interested in striker Reuben Reid.

The 23-year-old scored 21 times this season during a loan spell at Plymouth, including a strike against Pompey on the final day, and is now out of contract following his release by Yeovil.

And Awford revealed he is keeping a close eye on the forward, telling The News: 'He's one of a number of players we are currently addressing and having a look at.

'He's not our top or bottom target, but he's a player we know about who is out of contract. We'll see.

'He did well last season for Plymouth, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him raise interest from other clubs.

'I wouldn't say he's going to walk in the door next week, but he's on the list. He is one of many players we will weigh up over the next week."
