New Blue Ryan Fraser explains that one phone call with the manager was enough to convince him to join Town

  • Joins Town on a season-long loan
  • Raring to get started at Portman Road
  • Scottish U21 international winger

Ryan Fraser has told the Club website that one phone with Mick McCarthy was enough to convince him to join Town.

The Scottish winger joins the Blues on a season-long loan from Bournemouth, as part of the deal that saw Tyrone Mings depart Portman Road for the south coast.

Now the 21 year-old is raring to go at Town ahead of pre-season after speaking to the Blues boss.

“Well Eddie Howe spoke to me about the possibility of coming to Ipswich and whether I would be interested and I said I’d love to come here,” Ryan told the Ipswich Player HD.

“I then received a phone call from Mick McCarthy and we had a really good chat. We spoke for a little bit and he seemed a really good guy.

“He told me about the lads, told me about the town and the way he does things at Ipswich.

“That was all I needed to hear really and that’s me here now!

“I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead and getting stuck into pre-season training next week.

“Ipswich is a great Club and they were unlucky to just fall short in the Play-Offs but with hard work and a bit of luck, I think we can have a good crack at it again.”
