Portsmouth have signed Ipswich Town striker Brett Pitman on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The 29-year-old scored four goals for Mick McCarthy's side in the Championship last term.

The Jersey-born forward enjoyed two fruitful spells playing for Bournemouth either side of a three-year stint with Bristol City.

"I don't see this as a drop down, I see it as an opportunity to push on and hopefully get promoted again," he said.

Pitman added: "Coming back to the south coast is nice and this is a big club, so it's something I'm really looking forward to."
