Mick McCarthy and Terry Connor sold Ipswich Town to new signing Frank Nouble
THE lure of working with Mick McCarthy was a big factor in persuading Frank Nouble to sign for Ipswich Town.
The former England Under-19 striker today completed a 18-month deal from Wolves for an undisclosed fee.
After training with his new team-mates for the first time this morning, Nouble told the club website: “The enthusiasm that the manager and Terry have for the game is fantastic.
“They were big factors in me coming here. Mick was interested in me when I was at West Ham and I worked with Terry for a while after joining Wolves in the summer. They are two people who have a lot of respect in the game.”
Nouble is Town’s third attacking signing in just four days after David McGoldrick and Aaron McLean arrived on Friday.

And Nouble said: “I know it’s going to be a battle to get in the side. One look around the squad tells me that but you need that competition to be successful.
“I’m relishing the challenge and can’t wait to get going here.”
