LEWIS Price will today sign for Derby County after agreeing a three-year deal with the Premiership club.
The Rams have secured the Wales international for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £200,000 plus add-ons.
Price wanted to leave Ipswich after the arrival of Neil Alexander from Cardiff City, as he did not want to be a number two in the Championship.

But he completed a medical at Derby County last night and will be officially unveiled at Pride Park today.
The Bournemouth-born keeper was signed by the Blues Academy after leaving Southampton and was deputy to Kelvin Davis at Ipswich before making his league debut against Gillingham in April 2004.
He won the tussle with Shane Supple to be the recognised number one for Town last season but revealed to the EADT in May that he would seek to leave Ipswich if they brought in a senior keeper. Today marks the departure of the 23-year-old who made 75 appearances for the Blues and made his full international debut for Wales while at Portman Road.
