IPSWICH have completed their first signing of the summer after Welsh Under-21 international Elliott Hewitt agreed a three-year deal.

The right-back, 18 today, signed from Macclesfield for an undisclosed six-figure fee following the Silkmen’s relegation from the Football League.

Hewitt, who can also play in midfield, was released by Stoke City’s academy, progressing through Macclesfield’s youth ranks before becoming the youngest ever player to make their league debut for the club, aged at just 16 years and 342 days.

He went on to make 22 appearances last season, attracting the attention of a number of clubs, but a hip injury curtailed his involvement at the end of the campaign.

Hewitt has already been capped five times by his country at Under-21s level.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy says he expects keeper Bartosz Bialkowski to still be at the club come the end of the season.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy is hopeful he will add to his squad in time for Saturday’s visit to Bolton.

Tommy Smith will be allowed to pursue a move to MLS side Colorado Rapids as long as Ipswich Town are able to sign a replacement defender.

Ipswich Town travel to Bolton Wanderers for a Championship clash on Saturday (3pm).

Bersant Celina could have joined Bolton Wanderers in the summer rather than moving to Ipswich Town - and he’s convinced he made the right decision.

Ipswich Town’s Bryan Klug was spotted keeping an eye on Colchester United and Wycombe at the weekend.
