Lambert is linked with a swoop for two of relegated Portsmouth’s players…
It’s been reported today that we are interested in signing Portsmouth’s central defensive duo Joel Ward and Jason Pearce.
Ward, who is 22, came up through the ranks at Portsmouth and offers versatility as he can also play at right back and in midfield. He was linked with a £1.5m move to Ipswich in January, but rejected the move.
Jason Pearce is 24 and a centre back who also has come through the ranks at the club. He left to play for Bournemouth between 2007 and 2011, before returning to his first club. He was also linked with Ipswich in the January transfer window.
Both players would add depth to the squad relatively cheaply as Lambert plots early for next season.
