ADAM McGurk will not be joining Burton Albion in League One after signing a two-year deal with League Two Portsmouth.The 26-year-old striker spent two seasons at the Pirelli Stadium after Gary Rowett signed him in August 2013.
McGurk was part of the successful Albion team that eventually reached Wembley in the League 2 play offs in 2014 and the side promoted as champions in May.
He also scored some important goals for the club, including strikes against Southend in the play-off semi-finals, the goal which secured victory against QPR in the League Cup and the strike that saw promotion rivals Wycombe beaten in last season’s run in.
Brewers assistant manager David Oldfield said: “Adam was part of a successful group last season and played a big part in helping us get promoted and we want to thank him for his efforts and contribution to that success.
"He’s decided to go somewhere else and our club moves on and we hope that both clubs will be successful and we wish Adam all the best.”
New Portsmouth manager Paul Cook is looking to build a side that will follow Albion as League Two champions after quitting Chesterfield to take over at the former Premiership club.
McGurk is part of his new look squad at Fratton Park.
