Pompey assistant boss Tony Adams has admitted he has been watching Nathan Dyer.

Harry Redknapp is thought to be after a right sided midfielder and has asked Adams to find him one.

Dyer has been the man he has been tailing and the 19-year-old has another fan at Portsmouth - Rod Ruddick, the man who discovered and developed him for Saints but who has recently switched to a scouting role at Fratton Park.

Adams said: "I was at their game against West Brom but I wasn't watching Andrew Surman - he got dropped as well.

"I quite like the look of Nathan Dyer and he's one we've been looking at for a while.

"When Harry says "We need somebody on the right, do you know anyone?" I have to come up with options.

"I watched Dyer against West Brom on Saturday and he's a good, young player.

"At the moment I'm looking all over the place, I'm always looking. When you play Sundays it helps because you get an opportunity to look on the Saturday.

"Joe Jordan looks, Paul Groves looks. That part of the club has really gone right up, it really has improved.

"But yes, we've been watching Dyer."
