The 22-year-old has moved to the Amex Stadium for an undisclosed fee from Pompey.

It brings his four-year association with the Blues to an end, after initially arriving at Fratton Park on loan from Ipswich in July 2015 – a spell that was made permanent the following summer.

During that time, Clarke made 175 appearances and scored nine times.
