Pompey are hoping to complete a loan deal for Preston left-winger Lee Holmes.

The former Southampton player is currently in talks with the Blues as Andy Awford seeks to bolster his attacking options.

The 27-year-old has featured just once this season for the Lilywhites, although made 41 appearances in League One last term, scoring three times.

Holmes played 43 times for Southampton during an injury-hampered four-year spell on the south coast which ended in the summer of 2012.
