Plenty of Ipswich Town fans have reacted on social media after the club confirmed that winger Ellis Harrison has left the club to join Portsmouth.
Harrison scored one goal in 16 Championship appearances for Ipswich last season, as Paul Lambert’s side finished bottom of the second tier.
The winger joined the club from Bristol Rovers on a two-year deal last summer, but struggled with injuries throughout his first and only season at Portman Road.
Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett is looking to build a team that will challenge for promotion next season, after guiding Pompey to the League One play-off semi-finals and to a Checkatrade Trophy victory at Wembley last season.
Ipswich will also be hoping to challenge for promotion next season following their relegation from the Championship and Harrison will come up against his former teammates when the two sides meet at Fratton Park on December 21.
The news caused quite a reaction from Ipswich fans on social media, with many of them disappointed with Lambert’s decision to sell the winger to one of their promotion rivals for next season.
Here is a look at the best reactions to the news from Ipswich Town fans on social media…
Poor decision this, potential to be a cracking player ????????

To a direct promotion rival… this is an absolutely abysmal move by the club if he turns out to be a success for them.

Awful decision Lambert.

Everyone going mental about letting go a striker who scored one goal last year and ran about a bit, out fans just jump at any opportunity to moan. A good decision #itfc

Unless we have a striker coming in this is a very poor move for us.

Might come back to bite us but if Lambert doesn’t want him then moving him on and replacing him early is the best thing to do.
