Portsmouth teenage midfielder Alfie Bridgman has been training with Yeovil Town ahead of a possible loan move, according to reports on the South Coast.

The Portsmouth News has reported that the 17-year-old, who made his first-team debut last season and has appeared just once this year, spent last week training with the Glovers ahead of a move.

The report suggests his parent club require him for their Hampshire Senior Cup tie away at AFC Stoneham on Tuesday night, a game they won on penalties after a late equaliser cancelled out the midfielder’s “classy first half finish“.

The report suggests he turned in an “eye-catching performance” under the gaze of Pompey first team manager Danny Cowley, whose side’s next county cup fixture is not until February 23 when they visit Farnborough Town.

If keeping Bridgman closer to home to meet the demands of this competition were the reason for delaying a loan move, it would seem a deal could be wrapped up sooner rather than later.

He made his debut as a substitute in a 5-1 defeat at Peterborough United in the Papa John’s Trophy last January

This season, the youngster came on as a late substitute a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace Under-21s in the same competition back in November.

The Portsmouth News reports his two-year scholarship at Fratton Park ends this summer, with the youngsters waiting to learn whether they have futures with the club.
