Ipswich Town have completed the signing of Scott Fraser from MK Dons, with the 26-year-old arriving after an extremely successful year in Milton Keynes in which he scored 14 goals.
Fraser becomes Ipswich’s eighth summer signing as Paul Cook continues his revamp of a side that has failed to make the play-offs since being relegated to League One in 2019.
Along with Fraser the seven other summer signings consist of names like Joe Pigott, who arrived from AFC Wimbledon on Monday, Wes Burns from Fleetwood Town and Lee Evans, who played for Paul Cook at his previous club, Wigan Athletic.
It does seem, though, with Fraser arriving a couple midfielders could be departing Portman Road with Teddy Bishop being touted as Fraser’s replacement at Stadium MK, while Flynn Downes has been linked with a whole host of Championship clubs.
The arrival of Fraser signals a sign of intent from The Tractor Boys ahead of the forthcoming season as he was in demand after a very fruitful season under Russell Martin at MK Dons.
Cook had this to say upon his arrival: “It’s our second signing in three days (after the aforementioned Joe Pigott) and I am absolutely delighted.
“Scott is 26 years of age and has played in England for a number of years. He was blossoming at Burton and then took it up another level at MK Dons where he was one of the standout players in the division last season. Its great to have him here.”
How well do you know Ipswich Town’s celebrity supporters? – Can you score 20/20?
Scott Fraser has shown over the last couple of seasons that he is one of the best midfielders in League One.
No central midfielder scored as many as him last season with 14, while his 11 assists in his final campaign with Burton showed he is capable of setting up teammates as well.
Repeating that at Ipswich will surely delight Cook.
