Premier League talent Luke Garbutt has vowed to 'give my all for the shirt' after signing for Ipswich Town.

The left-sided specialist joined the Blues from Everton on loan for the season earlier today, and is expected to make his first appearance in a Blues' shirt in the four-team Interwetten Cup in Germany on Sunday.

The 26-year-old, who can play both left back and left wing, will bring an attacking threat and a tasty left foot to Town as they bid to bounce straight back up to the Championship after relegation last season.

He's following in the footsteps of fellow Toffees Conor Grant, Callum Connolly and Matt Pennington in spending time on loan at Portman Road from Everton recently, and says that their feedback was a key part of him deciding to make the move.

"I spoke to Matty and Callum and they had nothing but good things to say about the Club," Luke told iFollow Ipswich.

"They said it was a really welcoming club, a welcoming set of lads and a good place to be at.

"I'm raring to go now and I'm excited to see what the season holds.

"I've had a few loans spells now and I am hoping to find a club that feels like home, where I feel settled and where I'm playing well.
