Frederic Veseli has signed for Ipswich Town after being impressed on a pre-seaosn tour.

The 20-year-old defender, who can also play as a centre half or in midfield, has penned a two year deal at Portman Road, arriving as a free agent after being released by Manchester United at the end of last season.

Although a number of clubs were interested in the Switzerland U21 international Veseli chose Town after a recommendation from United’s reserve team coach Warren Joyce.

Veseli told the club’s website: “He said it was a really good club, a family club. He said it was a club where I could progress as a player. He told me to come here straightaway and he wasn`t the only one. I had great feedback about Ipswich from a lot of people.

“I spent a week in Ireland with the team and had a good feeling about the manager, the other staff and the players. Even though I did not know anyone, I felt very at home straightaway.

“Sometimes you have to go with your emotion. Your heart tells you where to go and I`ve done that. It`s an exciting new challenge for me and I can`t wait.”

This looks another good deal for Mick McCarthy and optimism for the new season is once again high. Let’s hope it is not another case of a false dawn.
