Ipswich Town have signed young goalkeeper Albert White on a free transfer.

The 18-year-old goalkeeper has agreed a one-year deal with the option of an additional year, following his release from AFC Wimbledon earlier this summer.

He had been with the Dons since the age of 14 after beginning his youth career at Bournemouth.

The youngster had been with the Blues’ young teams throughout much of their pre-season schedule and has clearly done enough to earn a full-time deal.

White has yet to make a professional appearance but did spend time on loan at Basingstoke in non-league last season.

He will now join the Blues’ Under 23 side, where he will push fellow young goalkeeper Adam Przybek in the wake of Harry Wright’s loan move to GAIS in Sweden recently.

David Cornell and Tomas Holy will battle it out for the Blues’ No.1 shirt this season.
