Maritimo are targeting a loan deal for Portsmouth misfit Collins Mbesuma.
Reports claim that Portuguese outfit Maritimo are targeting a loan deal for Portsmouth misfit Collins Mbesuma.
The Zambian international made just four appearances last season at Fratton Park and found himself firmly out of favour upon Harry Redknapp's return to the South Coast side.
With Pompey keen to increase the quality of their squad they are unlikely to stand in Mbesuma's way should he find a replacement club before the close of the transfer window.
Now reports claim that the man who once scored 35 goals in a season for Kaizer Chiefs is close to sealing a switch to Portugal.
Maritimo are the club hoping to resurrect the striker's career after his difficult time in England by offering him a loan escape from Fratton Park.
The Portuguese side have recently signed Argentinian forward Martin Prest and are looking to further increase their striking options with the capture of the Zambian international.
