Ipswich Town have recently completed a deal to sign Wes Burns, with the winger signing a three-year deal with the Tractor Boys.
Burns has previously been on the books with the likes of Bristol City and Aberdeen earlier in his career, and has caught the eye with some strong performances.
He has spent the last four years with League One side Fleetwood Town, and has seemingly made a good impression on Paul Cook, who has made his move early to add him to his squad for the upcoming league campaign, which is set to get under way in August.
Ipswich finished the 2020/21 season ninth in the League One table, and Cook will be hoping that Burns can make a positive impact at Portman Road, as they target promotion back into the Championship next season.
Burns has spoken out after agreeing a deal to sign for Ipswich Town for an undisclosed fee, and labelled the Tractor Boys as a ‘massive club’, before expressing his eagerness to get them back up the football pyramid, which will be pleasing to hear for the club’s supporters.

It’s been a frustrating few seasons for Ipswich, with this upcoming league campaign set to be their third straight season in the third tier of English football.
The Portman Road faithful have been patient enough already, and will be keen to see their side get off to a positive start in the 2021/22 campaign, where promotion is likely to be the expectation.
Can you name the player that was carded the most for Ipswich Town in each of the last 16 seasons?
This is a smart bit of business by the Tractor Boys.
I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen from Burns whilst with Fleetwood Town, and I certainly feel as though he’ll add some quality and a creative spark to the Ipswich Town team moving forwards.
He’s a player that has a good amount of experience of playing in League One over the years, and that’s exactly what the Tractor Boys need at this moment in time, as they target promotion back into the Championship in the new season.
A couple more signings like this, and I’d expect Paul Cook’s side to be in and around the top-six for the majority of the upcoming league campaign.
