Edun will be available for tomorrow’s Championship opener against Blackburn after the paperwork was completed on the deal before today’s midday deadline.

“I saw some of the work he did at Shrewsbury with young players - he launched their careers to some degree so I’m hoping for something similar here.

“I’m ready to go for the Blackburn match if I’m needed; if not then I’ll be looking forward to the next one.”

Edun made four appearances for the Cottagers last season – two in the League Cup towards the start of the season and twice in the Championship in November.

Edun will wear the No.25 shirt at Portman Road.

Speaking earlier this summer Jason Dozzell said Edun and his son Andre combined well for England.

More than 500 tickets have been donated for Ipswich Town’s home game against West Brom next Friday evening after one small act of kindness gained online momentum.

Toto Nsiala may currently find himself on the fringes of the Ipswich Town first-team but the central defender continues to make an impact off the field each and every week.

Andre Dozzell has revealed his frustration as his return to action stalled earlier in the season but the teenager is now hungry for minutes on the field after returning to the first-team picture.

In past columns I have talked about a divide between athletes that earn large amounts of money, and those that do not, and how there is a movement in Ipswich to bring this sporting diversity together.
