Aaron can't wait to get going at Town after deal completed

Aaron Drinan says he is thrilled to finally call himself an Ipswich Town player, having penned a three-and-a-half year deal with the Club.

The 19-year-old striker has been training with Blues since October and with the January transfer window open, he has completed his switch from Waterford after receiving international clearance this week.  

“It’s great and I’m buzzing to get going” the Irishman told iFollow Ipswich.

“Not being able to play was tough but I always knew the transfer would go through so I just kept my head down and worked hard.

“The manager has praised me in training so I hope I can take that out onto the pitch and impress him.

Aaron follows in the footsteps of former Blue, Daryl Murphy, who also joined English football from Waterford, and the new recruit revealed he’s already received a nickname from his Town team-mates.

“They’ve started calling me Murph,” he added.

“That sort of thing helps and I’ve received a warm welcome from everyone here.

“I’m so glad to be a part of the set-up now and I’m ready to crack on.”

Subscribers to iFollow Ipswich can watch the full interview with Aaron this afternoon.
