Portsmouth have discussed the possibility of signing Cardiff City winger Matthew Kennedy, according to Portsmouth.co.uk.

The 23-year-old has spent this season on loan at Fratton Park. His contract at Cardiff City expires in June meaning he is available to leave them on a free transfer.

Kennedy has featured for Pompey on 33 occasions in this campaign and has scored 3 goals. The League One side could sign him on a permanent basis in the summer to bolster their attacking options for next season.

It is unlikely that he will have a future at Cardiff City now after their promotion to the Premier League. He is expected to leave the Bluebirds next month.

Kennedy started his career at Kilmarnock but was snapped up by Everton in August 2012 for £225,000. He never broke into the first-team at Goodison Park but had loan spells at Tranmere Rovers, MK Dons and Hibernian.

He left Everton on a permanent basis in 2015 to sign for Cardiff City. He played 22 times for the Bluebirds since he moved to Wales but has had loan spells away at Port Vale, Plymouth Argyle and now Portsmouth. Kennedy has also represented Scotland at U16, U17, U18, U19 and U21 level.

Matthew Kennedy has had various loan moves throughout his career and needs to find a new permanent home. Portsmouth should sign him for free as he would offer them another option for next season.
