New signing relishing the chance to play a part in Blues' Premier League bid
The 25-year-old striker has joined Blues from Colchester for an undisclosed fee, signing a deal until the summer of 2017.
The former West Ham player trained with his new team-mates this morning and is in the squad for Saturday’s visit to Millwall.
“I’d heard there was a bit of interest at the start of January and then I got a call from my agent on Tuesday saying it was going to happen but after the weekend,” Freddie told Ipswich Player.
“Then I got another call yesterday saying it was on for today. I had the medical last night and signed this morning and I’m delighted to be an Ipswich Town player.
“I had a great time at Colchester but it was always my ambition to work my way up the league and play at a high level and coming to Ipswich gives me that opportunity.
“The team are flying at the moment, just a point off the top and there are some really good quality players here.
“The manager is obviously a big name in the game and I’ve only heard good things about him so when I knew he wanted me, it was a straight-forward decision for me. I couldn’t wait to come.
“It’s great that it’s been completed before the weekend and now I’m just looking forward to the challenge of helping the boys try to get in the Premier League.”
