Exeter City has confirmed that their manager, Paul Tisdale, has spoken to Portsmouth about the vacant manager's role at Fratton Park.
Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale has been interviewed for the vacant manager's job at Portsmouth according to their local newspaper The News. It reports that the longest serving manager in the football league was interviewed at a hotel in Newbury on Tuesday.
Tisdale is believed to be one of seven candidates for the job following the sacking of previous manager Guy Whittingham. The Portsmouth board are thought to be speaking to a shortlist of two today before announcing their appointment by Monday.
If Tisdale has spoken to Portsmouth then the news will come as a surprise to City fans. The most successful manager in Exeter's history has previously turned down the chance to become manager at Brighton and Swansea over the past few years.
