He made three appearances in total for the Clarets before spending the second half of last season on loan with Peterborough United, where he helped Darren Ferguson’s side reach the League One play-offs.

Pompey boss John Mousinho spoke of his delight at getting the move over the line.

“Will’s an experienced goalkeeper and played a lot of games last season, while also has experience of both the Premier League and the Championship,” he said.

“He comes here with a really good pedigree and will be looking to cement his place in the Pompey team.

“Will is a confident player and is comfortable on the ball, as well as being a good shot stopper and someone who commands his area.

“Everyone knows it was a position we wanted a permanent player for after last season and so we’re delighted to bring him to the south coast.”

Norris, who was born in Watford, began his career in non-league with Hatfield Town and Royston Town.

He then signed for Cambridge United and played a part in their return to the EFL.

The keeper went on to spend time with Wolves and Burnley, appearing in the top flight for both clubs.
