Portsmouth’s loaned in striker Omar Bogle has told Portsmouth News that he would consider making a permanent move to Fratton Park this summer.

Omar Bogle joined Portsmouth on loan for the rest of the season from Premier League side Cardiff City. The striker has thoroughly enjoyed his time with the club and has now said that he would be keen on a permanent switch at the end of the season. He has netted four goals in eight games so far.

Bogle had spent the first half of the season on loan in the Championship with Birmingham City, but he failed to make a lasting impression and his loan spell was cut short during the January transfer window.

The former Grimsby Town man has had an unsettling past few seasons, spending half a season with Wigan Athletic before joining Cardiff, where he has since been loaned out to Peterborough United, Birmingham and Portsmouth.

Now, he is looking to “settle down” with a new club, and he’s is open to that club being Pompey.

“I will want to find a home so I can settle down, really focus and think long term. It has been stop-start for me over the past few years,” Bogle said.

“I can’t really think who’s much better for me in terms of a manager and an assistant like Joe Gallen. They’re much better for me now and that’s what it’s about.

“It’s not about where I am mentally, not about the club or the level as such. It is more about playing for the right manager who can get the best out of me. The gaffer (Jackett) can definitely do that and he’s been doing that.

“I would have to consider it (a permanent move to Portsmouth). It is a big club, a good club and I get on really well with the gaffer. It’s something I would have to look at.”
