The 17-year-old midfielder, who can play in a variety of different roles, has put pen to paper on a deal until the end of next season.

Ipswich hold an option to extend his deal for a further year.

Dobra has impressed for the Under 23s and Under 18s so far this season and has also recently spent time training with Albania’s Under 19s.

He was a stand-out performer in the Under 23s’ 4-1 victory over Colchester on Monday, playing a part in two of the Ipswich goals.
