Steve Cotterill is certainly in demand after steering Notts County to promotion as Champions of League 2 this season.
He turned down the chance to become manager at Coventry in midweek prefering instead to accept an increased offer from County or so it was thought.
Media reports today suggest another Championship club could be seeking to tempt Cotterill away from Meadow Lane.
According to the Mirror our former gaffer is Portsmouth`s top target to replace Avram Grant as their manager. Grant resigned from the debt-ridden,relegated club last week.
Cotterill does not yet appear to have signed a new contract at County and it is thought that financially stricken Portsmouth have targeted him because they wont have to splash out for compensation once he is out of contract. Gus Poyet at Brighton was understood to also be of interest but it looks like he is about to sign a new four-year contract with the Seagulls.Promoting first-team coach Paul Groves was another option that Pompey were assessing but it looks like they would prefer someone with more experience.
It has been an amazing year for Cotterill who effectively was in the football wilderness for two years afetr leaving Burnley by mutual consent in November 2007.
Taking over the reins at County in February 2010 was his first managerial role since leaving the Clarets and clearly his success at Meadow Lane has attracted a number of suitors from higher divisions.
Speaking about Pompey's interest, Cotterill said:
"It is flattering to be linked with other jobs but I`m level headed."
If the speculation is true, Clarets fans could yet see Cotterill return to Turf Moor next season afterall.
