Dan Butler is the interest of a number of Premier League clubs

A number of Premier League clubs are reportedly tracking the progress of Portsmouth youngster Dan Butler.

The 18-year-old has come through the ranks at Portsmouth and is highly-regarded at Fratton Park.

Butler enjoyed a spell on loan at Havant & Waterlooville earlier this season and was named the club's player of the month twice during his time there.

The full-back was recalled to Portsmouth in January due to the club's shortage of players and he has started the League One side's last three games.

Butler's progress at Portsmouth has attracted the interest of a number of clubs higher up the league.

Due to Portsmouth's dire financial problems, Butler's suitors know they could land the defender for a minimal fee and Pompey are bracing themselves for bids.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
