The 23-year-old registered six goals and seven assists last season, helping the Brewers to a ninth-place finish in League One.

And he signed off his career at the Pirelli Stadium with a superb strike in Burton’s 2-1 pre-season victory over Premier League side Sheffield United on Tuesday.

Harness is a capture that has left large sections of the Fratton faithful purring.

In Pompey’s 2-1 win at the Brewers in front of the Sky Sports cameras on Easter Friday, he was the hosts’ chief attacking threat and caused Kenny Jackett’s men all sorts of problems.

Memories of his performance are still vivid and Blues fans are delighted he’s moved to Fratton Park.

Here’s how they reacted on social media…
