The Gunners were disappointed with just 10 appearances for the highly-rated youngster, while Azeez himself had become frustrated.

It culminated in the Premier League club requesting his time at Fratton Park be cut short, activating a recall clause to end a scheduled season-long stay.

Despite his Arsenal return, Azeez wasn’t named in their under-23 fixture against West Ham on Friday evening.

His Pompey exit leaves two loans slots for Danny Cowley – of which one has already been filled by Hayden Carter.

The Blackburn Rovers man’s anticipated arrival was announced officially by the Blues at noon today.
