The player will put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal at Fratton Park and moves to the club from Pompey’s League Two rivals Burton Albion.

The 26-year-old turned down the Brewers’ offer of a new deal at the Pirelli Stadium after favouring a move to Fratton Park.

The former Aston Villa trainee made 83 appearances for Burton and scored 19 goals during his two year spell with the club.

New Portsmouth boss Cook is looking to build a side capable of challenging for promotion from League Two next season and McGurk will add League Two experience in abundance.

Shortly after signing for his new club, McGurk spoke to the Portsmouth official website.

He said: “What attracted me to this club was the size of it and the large crowds who come to watch games.

“I have played against Pompey a few times and I have always been struck by how fantastic the fans are.”
