KEVIN Lisbie has completed his move to Ipswich Town from Colchester United.

The former Charlton striker has signed a three-year deal with the Blues after a £600,000 move from layer Road.

U's boss Geraint Williams was sad to lose the player who hit 17 goals in 43 appearances for the U's last season.

Williams said: “We are obviously disappointed to lose Kevin. We showed how much we wanted to keep him and did our best in that regard. However, the lure of Championship football proved too great and he has decided that he would like to join Ipswich.

"On a personal note, I would like to thank Kevin for his service. We have been good for his career and he has been good for Colchester United with the quality he has shown."
