Andoh, born in Amsterdam, brought up in Leicester and schooled in Canada, had been playing for Worcester City in the non-league game but impressed sufficiently on trial with Ipswich earlier this season.

The 19-year-old, played at right back during two games for the Under 23s, in which he set up two goals, can play all across the backline as well as in midfield.

During his time in Canada he was at Thompson Rivers University and will now arrive at Portman Road to work with the Under 23 squad.

Andoh will move to Ipswich on an 18-month deal, taking him through to the end of the 2020/21 season.
