Waghorn delighted to be a Blue and looking to play his part in successful times at Town

Martyn Waghorn says he is hoping to bring the best football of his career to Ipswich Town.

The 27-year-old striker has signed a two year deal with a year option after joining the Club from Rangers for an undisclosed fee.

“I know about all the history of Ipswich and watched the Club when they were in Europe. I know what a good club it is so it’s a great opportunity for me,” the former England U21 international told iFollow.

“I was at Sunderland’s Academy and was a ballboy at games when he [Mick McCarthy] was manager there so I know all about the manager here as well. He’s achieved a lot in the game and I’m grateful to him for giving me the chance to come here and play games.

“It’s an exciting move for me. You get a fresh buzz when you join a new club. That’s how I feel. It’s a new start and I’m really looking forward to it.

“I’m 27 and feel I’m coming into my prime now and feel my best football is yet to come.  

“I know some of the lads already, Garns [Joe Garner] from Rangers, Emyr [Huws]. They are good players. There is a good squad here.

“I have played regularly over the last few years and scored a few goals. I know about the Championship. I played in a couple of Play-Offs so hopefully I can bring that experience and kick on here and help Ipswich have a good season and have some success here.”

Subscribers to iFollow can watch the first interview with Martyn, a former £3m signing with Leicester, this afternoon.
