Ipswich Town have completed the permanent signing of midfielder Rekeem Harper from West Brom, the League One club has confirmed.
Having graduated through the Baggies academy, Harper went on to make 42 appearances in all competitions for the club at senior level, scoring twice.
The 21-year-old then spent the second half of last season on loan with Birmingham, and the midfielder has now completed a long-term exit from The Hawthorns.
Harper has signed a three-year contract with Ipswich, with the option to extend that deal by a further 12 months, effectively securing his future at the club until the end of 2024/25 season.
Did these 20 midfielders ever score a goal for Ipswich?
Having completed that move for an undisclosed fee, Harper becomes Ipswich’s third senior signing of the summer window, following the arrivals of winger Wes Burns and midfielder Lee Evans from Fleetwood and Wigan respectively.
Taking to Twitter to react to news of Harper’s arrival, plenty of Ipswich fans were keen to give their thoughts on the club’s latest signing.
Here, we take a look at what some of those Tractor Boys fans had to say.
