Toto Nsiala has departed Ipswich Town, completing a permanent move to Fleetwood Town.

The transfer fee is undisclosed, but it's likely that the Blues have received a nominal amount for the centre-back given he was in the final six months of his contract at Portman Road.

Along with Jon Nolan, Nsiala joined Town in a £2m double deal from Shrewsbury back in 2018, the pair becoming reunited with their former boss Paul Hurst.

He exits having made 77 appearances for the Blues over a three-and-a-half year period, including 14 starts this season.

Fleetwood are currently 19th in League One, two points above the drop zone.

Asked how he reflects on his time in Suffolk, Nsiala told BBC Lancashire: "There's a lot to be said about how it went at Ipswich. Some things are best left not really spoken about and you just move on.

"I can't really tell you how it went. Some people say it went well, some people will say it didn't. Good luck to them. Hopefully they'll do well."

He added: "It feels good to be back up north, it was important for the family to do this, and I want to just focus on my football, play more games and show my worth."

Cod Army boss Stephen Crainey said: "He's got good experience at our level and has played at some big clubs. I'm really looking forward to working with him.

"Toto is dominant in both boxes and he can also play comfortably with the ball at his feet. I'm delighted to get the deal over the line and get a player of Toto's calibre in the building."

Nsiala, who is reunited with his former Town team mate Ellis Harrison at Highbury, could make his Fleetwood debut in a home game against Rotherham tomorrow.
