Former Portsmouth defender Ricardo Rocha could rejoin the League One outfit.

Portsmouth caretaker boss Guy Whittingham has revealed that he wants to bring Portuguese defender Ricardo Rocha back to the League One club.

The 34-year-old left Fratton Park at the end of last season after failing to agree terms with the club, but Whittingham has confirmed that talks have begun to re-sign the defender.

"I have had contact with Ric. There is a long way to go but he is one of the guys I would like to bring back," Whittingham told The News.

"There are two willing parties trying to do it. The circumstances we are under doesn't make it that easy, but I think he would love to come back and we would love to have him back so we'll see how we go.

"He has always stayed in touch. When I got the caretaker role, one of the first texts I had was from him wishing me all the best - and that's where it started."

Rocha made 76 appearances for Portsmouth.
