He made 22 appearances in total, including 14 in the Premier League, and scored one goal.

After a string of loan spells at Derby County, West Brom, Norwich City and Red Bull Salzburg – where he won the Austrian Bundesliga title – Wisdom left in 2017.

The 29-year-old then made a permanent move to Derby, where he played for four years.

Wisdom helped the Rams maintain their championship status through the 2021-22 season before opting not to sign a new contract.

However, the former England Under-21 international has not played a competitive game in over a year and is now looking to get his career back on track at Portsmouth.

Wisdom played in two friendlies for League One Pompey over the weekend – a 3-0 loss to Havant & Waterlooville and a 1-0 loss to Gosport Borough.

“He was outstanding in both games. He was great for the young players with his experience and leadership.

“If you ask Haji (Mnoga) and Liam Vincent who played on either side of him and Jay (Mingi) who played in front of him, they would say what a great help he was and that he was a great help to theirs development can be . He can be good for us.

“He had a tough year last year so he’s available for us to watch.

“We know what a good player he is, it was more to see where he was physically and in terms of fitness. He had two very good 45 minutes for us.”
