BREAKING NEWS: Three Portsmouth players set to leave in January

Every season, Pompey has been expected to challenge for a play-off spot, and while they have done so in certain seasons, they have struggled in recent years.

Last season, former Oxford United player John Mousinho was brought in to try to rectify that.

Evidently, in his short time at the club, he has accomplished this, with the South Coast side finishing last season strongly and starting this season strongly.

Throughout the summer, Mousinho made considerable changes, bringing in 14 new players. That appears to have aided the team’s strong start to the season, and while we are only in October, it won’t be long before the season is over.

This will provide Mousinho another opportunity to make changes to his squad, both in terms of incomings and outgoings.So, here at Football League World, we’ve chosen three Portsmouth players who could move in January…

Brian Quarm
The youthful central defender has previously played for Portsmouth’s first team, but he is yet to make an impact this season.

Mousinho has numerous excellent options in the central area of defense, therefore Quarm, who will be playing for the club’s academy side, could be loaned out in January for more first-team action.

The 17-year-old defender has previously featured for the team in the EFL Trophy. However, Pompey have a large roster this season, and it appears that opportunities for players like Quarm may be scarce, therefore the League One club may decide to loan him away for the rest of the season in January.

Hume, Denver

Hume is well-known in the EFL, having spent time with Sunderland before moving on to Portsmouth.

Hume, 25, joined Portsmouth in January 2022, but has failed to obtain consistent minutes for the club since moving to the South Coast.

The defender appeared nine times in the 2021/22 season, and then only 20 times in all competitions last season as he fell out of favor under Mousinho.

Hume hasn’t played a single game this season and hasn’t even been included to any matchday teams. It is unknown whether the player is injured, but it was evident in the summer that Portsmouth were looking to transfer the left-back in order to reclaim the money they paid Sunderland for his services.

With that in mind, it would not be surprising to see the defender move in January; the only question is whether it is a temporary or permanent exit.

Folarin, Sam

Academy Draw With Plymouth - News - Portsmouth

Folarin is another young player who has been called up to matchday squads but has yet to feature for the club.

Folarin is an attacker for Pompey, but considering the club’s abundance of attacking alternatives this season, it appears his chances of making the first team are slim.

The young man will play for the club’s academy sides, but it’s possible that when January arrives, Portsmouth will want to send one or two of these younger players out on loan to gain additional experience.

Folarin could fall into that group, as he has failed to impress Portsmouth’s boss.
