Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett has claimed that Jamal Lowe – who had been the subject of interest from Millwall this summer – has not handed in a transfer request.
We reported recently that the Lions had moved on to other targets after their attempts to add Lowe to their squad were rebuffed by the South-Coast outfit, who lost in the League One play-off semi-final.
Wigan had also been credited with a formal approach.
There has been a report that Lowe wanted to leave and had told the club that.
But former Millwall boss Jackett, speaking to the Portsmouth News, said: “Jamal Lowe hasn’t requested a transfer.
“There has been a lot of speculation. We turned down two bids in the summer.
“I don’t think that club are coming back now, whether there are any bids in the future I don’t know.
“We haven’t got any appetite and our board of directors have no appetite to sell him.
“I can’t tell what will happen between now and the end of August for Jamal. He is a very committed and talented part of our squad who comes back and focuses on the season ahead.”
