Leeds United, Cardiff City and Wigan look set to battle it out to land Portsmouth's topscorer Jamal Lowe, Sky Sports News understands.

The 24-year-old, who scored 17 goals for Pompey in all competitions in the 2018/19 season, has just 12 months left on his contract.

Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett is keen to keep hold of his star striker - but may be tempted to allow a transfer, with Lowe's asking price expected to be in the region of £2m.

Jackett recently confirmed there have been no official bids for Lowe yet, but he is aware of growing speculation.

"We will see about [...] Jamal, if bids come in for any of our players we will deal with it then," he said earlier this week.
