Portsmouth have agreed the signing of midfielder David Norris from Ipswich on a free transfer.

The former Town skipper will officially become a Pompey player next month after leaving Portman Road.


Boss Steve Cotterill told The News: "David has agreed to come here and will be in to join his new team-mates on July 1."

He added: "We're delighted that he's agreed to come. He has great leadership qualities. You don't become the captain of a great club like Ipswich Town if you don't.

"He is a leader, has great quality and scores goals.

"We've agreed and sorted out his arrival now. It's a big bonus. I looking forward to working with him very much."
