Derby County

Addressing the transfer interest of Pompey’s fellow promotion aspirants



This weekend, Pompey will return to League One play at home against Shrewsbury Town in an attempt to move one step closer to the Championship. Their last game at Fratton Park ended in a 2-2 draw with Derby County.

Above the Rams in the League One standings, John Mousinho’s team continues to lead. Here are some of the most recent rumors and news from the division.

Blackpool CEO on rumors of a transfer

Reporter Alan Nixon claims on his Patreon page that Blackpool defender Jordan Lawrence-Gabriel has come to the attention of Lincoln City, who are hoping to promote him. The former Nottingham Forest player joined Bloomfield Road’s roster in 2021.

The Imps, who currently sit sixth in the standings, want to rise like Pompey. According to a Blackpool Gazette report, their manager Neil Critchley commented on the rumors, saying, “I’m not aware of that link.”

Although silly season isn’t quite finished yet and there are links everywhere, I’m sure they will start to surface in the coming weeks. Some of them will be real, while others won’t. All we need to focus on is ourselves, the players that are already on the team, and the players we plan to bring in during the summer.

Bristol Rovers wants more agreements finalized.

Matt Taylor, the manager of Bristol Rovers, has stated that he hopes to finalize a few more contracts for the upcoming campaign. Goalie Jed Ward recently signed a new contract with the Gas.

A number of their players at the Memorial Ground are dealing with uncertain futures. We would like a few more signed, sealed, and delivered before the end of the season because May, June, and likely July leading into the proper season of August will be, to put it mildly, chaotic. However, if we can reduce that and complete more work in the interim, that would be fantastic. Taylor stated this to BristolLive.

Watching winger: Carlisle United

This summer, Carlisle United will monitor Jack Diamond’s circumstances at Sunderland. During the January transfer window, the winger went on loan to the Cumbrians.

He will make his Stadium of Light comeback next month, having played 12 occasions since moving to Brunton Park. “He’s under contract at Sunderland, they have an option with him, so we’ll wait and see what happens with that come the end of the season, and it may be part of the whole recruitment job—which I can assure everybody will be a big recruitment job in the summer,” stated Paul Simpson in an interview with the News & Star.
