Portsmouth have agreed the signing of Ipswich midfielder David Norris on a free transfer.
The former Town captain, who has been at Ipswich since 2008, will officially become a Pompey player next month when he departs Portman Road.
Manager Steve Cotterill says he is looking forward to welcoming the 30-year-old to Fratton Park.
"David has agreed to come here and will be in to join his new team-mates on July 1st," Cotterill told The Portsmouth News.
"We're delighted that he's agreed to come. He has great leadership qualities. You don't become the captain of a great club like Ipswich Town if you don't.
"He is a leader, has great quality and scores goals.
"We've agreed and sorted out his arrival now. It's a big bonus. I'm looking forward to working with him very much."
