almost 200 appearances, scoring 35 goals.

“I’m obviously delighted to be here. It’s a big challenge and a

big opportunity for me and I can’t wait to get going,” Wordsworth

told the club’s official website.

“I had opportunities to move last January but this feels the

right time and the right club to make that step up.

“There was talk of other clubs being interested in me but

Ipswich was the only club that I wanted to join and I’m delighted I

have been given the chance to show what I can do.”
