Mikel Miller is wanted by a number of League One clubs including Portsmouth

And now it is understood Pompey have also expressed an interest.

The two parties are yet to formally discuss a deal, but it is a move that Miller would be keen on.

The south coast club, under boss Danny Cowley, are building a squad that is capable of launching a League One promotion bid and Miller is a player who knows what it takes, having been part of the Rotherham squad that finished second last season.

Miller was a key player for large periods of the season in a left wing-back role but injuries ruined the second half of the campaign.

Despite his impressive performances, boss Paul Warne opted not to offer a fresh contract, leaving Miller a free agent.

Joe Mattock was also released after seven years at the Millers and he has joined League Two side Harrogate Town.

The 32-year-old was hugely popular at the AESEAL New York Stadium but suffered regular injuries over the last couple of years.

Mattock said on Instagram: “I just wanna say a big thank you to everyone @officialrufc for my time there, I’ve had some unbelievable highs and it’s honestly been the best 7 years of my life! “But my time has finished there now and it’s time for a new chapter @harrogatetownafc.”
