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.

The centre-back played a key role when Pompey were crowned League Two champions in 2017, as well as the Checkatrade Trophy at Wembley in March.
