Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams has asked the FA to launch an investigation into comments made by Portsmouth manager Paul Cook. 

Cook responded to rumours that Reuben Reid was close to signing for Pompey. Reid has scored 44 goals for Argyle since first signing in 2013 and has been heavily linked with a move to Fratton Park over the past year. Cook told the Portsmouth News last week:

“Nothing. No, no, absolutely not. There’s nothing close. We have been interested in the lad and it hasn’t seen us obtain the lad. So everyone should mark the sand and move on.”

However, Adams was unhappy that Cook commented on Reid’s availability so close to a game and has now spoken out against Cook. When speaking to BBC Sport, Adams said:

“I don’t think other managers should be talking about other players. The FA will have to look at that because you shouldn’t really be mentioning other players in the media.”

Rumours were further sparked following Reid’s absence from the team for Saturday’s victory against Newport County. Adams has though ruled out a move away from Home Park for star striker Reid during this transfer window.

Would Reuben Reid make a good signing for Portsmouth? Let us know what you think in this poll.
