Portsmouth pair Gavin Whyte and Anthony Scully’s futures at Fratton Park are ‘uncertain’ are the moment, as detailed in a report by The News.

Both Whyte and Scully were part of their squad who won the league last term. However, their chances of regular game time in the league above may be limited.

The News claim their situations are both up in the air at this moment in time and the club have some tough decisions to make.

Portsmouth are in the hunt for some new faces in the upcoming transfer window and if attacking players are to come through the entrance door, that would push the duo even further down the pecking order.

Portsmouth landed him last summer to add more competition and depth to their attacking department. Prior to his move there, he had spells at Crusaders, Oxford United, Cardiff City and Hull City.

As for Scully, he only has 12 months left on his deal and is due to become a free agent in 2025.

He rocked up in Hampshire last year as well and played only nine matches under Mousinho last term altogether.

The London-born man is a West Ham academy graduate and was a hit during his time at Lincoln City from 2020 to 2022, firing 37 goals in 106 matches.

Wigan Athletic then snapped him up before his switch to Pompey but he hasn’t quite managed to find the form he had with the Imps with either.

What next?

Cutting ties with Whyte and Scully would be useful for Portsmouth as it would free up space and funds in their squad.

This would clear room to bring in other reinforcements who would be able to make more of an impact in the Championship.

Pompey have gone up along with Derby County and Oxford United. The latter beat Bolton Wanderers in the play-off final at Wembley.
