Portsmouth waiting for Brighton to formalise Clarke interest

Portsmouth are still waiting for Brighton to firm up their interest in defender Matt Clarke.

The Argus says the Seagulls are interested in Pompey's highly-rated centre-back.

But no bid had been made as of late yesterday afternoon in what is a notoriously slow period of the transfer window.

Pompey are hoping a bidding war increases the fee they would receive with a handful of clubs, mainly from the Championship, reported to be keen.

New Albion boss Graham Porter watched Clarke in the recent play-offs and likes his centre-backs to be comfortable taking the ball off the goalkeeper and building from the back.
