Ipswich Town have re-signed forward Luke Varney after releasing him back in May, the club’s official website has confirmed.
Varney, who signed for the club on loan from Blackburn in February 2015 before signing permanently for the 2015-16 season, has played 31 times in total for the Tractor Boys and has become a fans’ favourite at the club, despite scoring only twice in his Portman Road career.
He was released by Mick McCarthy in May, but the manager has signed him again on another short term deal, with his contract expiring in January. He’s an ex-Premier League player, playing 30 times for Blackpool on loan from Derby during their solitary season in the top flight, and has been signed as cover due to Brett Pitman’s injury.
The club only have Daryl Murphy and David McGoldrick as cover up front, and Grant Ward and Cameron Stuart on the wings, so Varney could well feature prominently as Ipswich look to get into the play-offs after coming close last season.
Ipswich fans, what do you think? Is Varney a good signing? Is he likely to help you win promotion this season? Let us know below!
