Jonathan out to help Town's bid for top six - maybe alongside a familiar face

Jonathan Parr says he has joined Town with the target of getting back to where he came from – the Premier League. 

The 25-year-old defender has joined Blues on a two year deal after becoming a free agent in the summer following the completion of his contract at Crystal Palace. 

Jonathan spent three years at Selhurst Park and was a regular in their team that won promotion to the top flight via the Play-Offs in 2013, going on to make 15 appearances in the Premier League after his recovery from an ankle ligament injury.

“I did my ankle at Portman Road, so not the best memory for me. Hopefully I can create some good memories in my time here,” the Norway international told Ipswich Player. 

“It’s been a long summer, trying to sort out where I’m going to play my football. I spoke to a number of clubs but I had a good feeling about Ipswich. 

“I watched Ipswich play last season and they looked a good team. The manager told me what we wants from his team and how he’s looking to be pushing for a place in the top six. 

“That’s where I want to be. Everyone wants to play at the highest level and I’ve joined Ipswich to help the Club get in the Premier League. 

“Having been here today and speaking to a lot of people, it looks a club that is all working together and that’s made me feel even better about the decision I have made. 

“I spoke to Jonny Williams, who was here on loan last season of course and he couldn’t speak highly enough of the Club. Maybe I can get him to join me. I’ll give it a go. It could be fun!”
