IPSWICH Town today confirmed that they have agreed to sign Macedonian midfielder international Velice Sumulikoski.
The 26-year-old, who plays for Turkish side Bursaspor, has been on trial at Portman Road for a week.
Ipswich confirmed today that the transfer has been agreed with the player and his club although the fee is not yet known.
The deal is subject to the player passing a medical and being granted a work permit.
Sumulikoski, who made his international debut in 2002, has won 46 caps and scored one goal.
He is called the Balkans' Steven Gerrard by some fans.

He has previously been on trial with Barclays Premier League side Blackburn Rovers.
Sumulikoski, who was formerly with Russian side Zenit St Petersburg, is renowned for his ferocious tackling and vision and has been likened in some quarters to Tugay, Blackburn's Turkish midfield star.
Should Sumulikoski join he will become Town's second signing of the transfer window following the capture of Alan Quinn from Sheffield United for £400,000.
