The midfielder’s time at Fratton Park has come to a close after two-and-a-half years.

He’s one of six first-team players – along with Jordy Hiwula, Charlie Daniels. Bryn Morris, Duncan Turnbull and Taylor Seymour – who leave after the Blues missed out on the League One play-offs.

Cannon was brought to Pompey for £150,000 from Rochdale in January 2019, scoring three goals in 79 appearances.

The 25-year-old paid tribute to former manager Kenny Jackett who signed him, along with the supporters and everyone else who’s been part of his Blues journey.

He wrote on Twitter: ‘Thank you @Pompey.

‘To Kenny Jackett bringing me to this great club, the board/owners, players and all the staff I’ve worked with along the way.... last but not least the amazing fans at this club 2 and a half years I won’t forget. Been a pleasure. All the best. AC.’
