Ipswich Town have completed the signing of young French defender Chris Goteni.

The teenager has been playing for Saint-Apollinaire in the fifth tier of French football, but has signed a deal until the end of the season after impressing during a trial at Town’s Playford Road base.

Goteni was at ASPTT Dijon until last summer, with McCarthy revealing his arrival after the Blues’ 1-0 victory over Leeds.
