“His situation is that, after maybe 2-3 weeks of training to get up to speed, the back end will then see him play a game or two. We do understand that if something comes up in the meantime then he will speak to the another club, I do see that,” Jackett explained.
“But, similarly, we have to do what is right for this club, which is having a look at him in training and possibly a game or two.”
Meredith has been without a club since his release from Millwall this past summer.
The Australian international was a regular for Millwall over the past two years. He made more than 80 Championship appearances but then lost his place towards the end of last season.
The 31-year-old is capable of playing at both left-back and left midfield. He would offer Kenny Jackett’s side versatility, covering two positions while his experience should be a good fit at Fratton Park.
Jackett, however, seems to want to take a closer look at the player’s fitness before making a move. The upcoming Hampshire Cup clash against Hawks will be an ideal opportunity to give him minutes.
