Portsmouth haven’t talked to Cardiff City about signing striker Omar Bogle on a permanent deal.

The 26-year-old has made an impressive start to life on loan at Fratton Park and has scored four goals in eight games.

Bogle, who joined Cardiff in August 2017, has struggled to nail down a regular starting place for the Bluebirds and has had loan spells away from the Welsh side at Peterborough United, Birmingham City and now Pompey.

Cardiff will obviously see what division they are in but he has got a year left“.

Bogle has proven he can score goals in the past and he could be the man to lead Portsmouth’s line for the next few years.
