IPSWICH Town's £1.1m signing of defender Gareth McAuley appears to have hit a hitch this lunchtime with news that the signing is being held up because of a paperwork issue.

A press conference to unveil the 28-year-old Northern Ireland international, scheduled for 11am this morning, has been put back as officials work to resolve the problem, said to be at Leicester's end of the deal.

However, Town have stressed that the deal is done and the move will still go ahead.
