Portsmouth centre back Adam Webster will join Ipswich Town in a deal which sees Matt Clarke go the other way, both the Tractor Boys and the South Coast outfit have confirmed the move on their official websites.
Webster leaves Fratton Park after 9 years with Pompey, amassing 65 league appearances in what has been a difficult period for the club.
The former England under-19 international has signed a three year deal in East Anglia and is understood to have become the most expensive signing of the Mick McCarthy era.
As part of the deal, Matt Clarke will also make his loan stint with the League Two outfit a permanent one, after impressing in Webster’s absence through injury.
The 19-year old has also penned a three-year deal upon his arrival and will officially link up with Paul Smith’s side on July 1st.
Having narrowly missed out on the playoff final, Portsmouth will no doubt be looking to kick on as they bid to leave one of the darkest periods in the club’s history at long last.
How good a deal will this turn out to be for Ipswich Town? Have Pompey landed themselves a good replacement?
