Winger Carayol signs until the end of the season and is relishing Town chance

Town have signed Mustapha Carayol on a short-term contract until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old winger joins as a free agent, and has previous Championship experience with Middlesbrough, Brighton, Huddersfield, Leeds and Nottingham Forest.

The Gambia international has made more than 100 Championship appearances, while also earning four caps and scoring two goals for his national side.

He signs for Town having made 17 appearances for Forest this season, including coming on as a substitute in the defeat against Blues at Portman Road in December.

“The gaffer showed interest in me before I signed for Forest so as soon as I knew Ipswich were keen on me it was an easy decision,” Muzzy told iFollow Ipswich.

“I know a lot about Ipswich. I have played against the team a few times and know a lot of the players here. I saw Cole Skuse in Dubai a couple of years ago and he was trying to convince me to sign!

“I spoke to Frank Nouble a few hours back and he said ‘just go there. You’ll enjoy it’. Frank is a good friend of mine so I couldn’t have got any better advice really.

“Forest was probably the most frustrating time of my career so I’ve come here to play games and I’ll work as hard as I can. I want to make a big impact here and help the team.

“I’m here until the end of the season. That is my focus for now but hopefully I can impress the gaffer and the fans and I can show the gaffer I’m worth keeping beyond the summer.”
