Blues snap up midfielder on a free transfer
Stephen Gleeson has joined Town on a free transfer from Birmingham.
The 29-year-old Republic of Ireland international has signed a deal until the end of the season and looks set to go straight into the squad for Blues’ weekend visit to Bolton.
The move sees the midfielder reunited with Mick McCarthy who gave him his League debut at Wolves after he had progressed through the Academy there.
Stephen made a handful of first-team appearances for the gold and blacks, as well as spending time on loan at Stockport, Herford and MK Dons, before joining The Dons permanently in the summer of 2009.
He spent five years at the club, clocking up more than 200 appearances, then headed to Birmingham in 2014.
The Dublin-born player went on to play 125 times for the midlanders but with his contract up at the end of the season, he will now spend the second half of the campaign wearing the number 25 shirt at Portman Road.
