Michael Brown could come back to haunt Pompey - by joining one of their potential rivals to avoid relegation to League One. Crystal Palace are among clubs interested in taking the midfielder away from Fratton.

But Pompey could be closing in on a near-deadline-day swoop of their own - for Burnley defender Tyrone Mears. Burnley have turned down the Blues' reported initial approach but they may persist.


Palace's interest in Brown - who appears to have priced himself out of playing for Pompey again - was confirmed by manager Dougie Freedman. 'He is one we are looking at,' said Freedman.

'We know we need some experience in the middle of the park and he might be the answer. There are other targets as well that I don't want to name at the moment, but I can assure the supporters we are doing our best to get more people in to strengthen the squad.'

Sky is reporting that Pompey are interested in Burnley full-back Mears, who impressed in Burnley's win at Fratton on Turesday.

The 27-year-old has been at Turf Moor since 2009 when he joined from Marseille. Pompey are said to have made an offer to Burnley to land the Jamaican international. But boss Eddie Howe is believed to have shunned their initial approach. Mears has 18 months left on his current deal with the Lancashire outfit.

Pompey have a blank weekend but are back in action on Tuesday night with a daunting trip to QPR.
