Portsmouth's bargain basement buys are set to continue after the club's chief executive Peter Storrie confirmed they are pursuing Celtic full-back Lee Naylor.
Naylor, 28, is thought to be surplus to requirements at Parkhead after new Bhoys boss Tony Mowbray splashed out £2million on Danny Fox, who joined from Coventry
After initailly impressing in his first season north of the border following his £600,000 move from Wolves
in 2006, Naylor has endured a frustrating last 18 months or so and has came in for a barrage of criticism from the Scottish press and the Celtic
Although neat and tidy when in possession, question marks still remain over the Englishman's positional sense and his final ball...well it's non existent quite frankly!
But that has not stopped new Pompey boss Paul Hart from expressing his interest in the ace as he faces up to fact that the days of big-money signings at Fratton Park are long gone.
"He is one player we've looked at,"
Storrie told The Scottish Sun. "We'll see what happens between now and the end of August."
Aaron Mokoena and Steven Finnan have arrived on free transfers, while Frederic Piquionne has joined on a season-long loan from Lyon
as Hart continues his uphill battle to build a side capable of competing next season.
