"I really wanted to be a part of it so that’s why I ended up coming here"

David Cornell says that the shared goals between himself and Town are a key reason for his move to Portman Road.

The goalkeeper is one of three new signings for Blues, with Stephen Ward and Oli Hawkins also joining ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

Having signed a two-year deal - with the Club having an optional extra year - David has big aims for the coming season and beyond with the Club.

"It’s another step in my career for where I want to be," he told iFollow Ipswich.

"It’s a Club that has high ambitions. I really wanted to be a part of it so that’s why I ended up coming here.

"Fingers crossed that this season, we can make that step and finish as high as we can - and hopefully that’ll take us into the Championship.

"It’s going to be a little different for the first couple of months with no fans. I’m looking forward to playing here and the fans being back in - and hopefully having a successful season."

Speaking about his meeting with Paul Lambert ahead of signing for Blues, the former Wales U21 international added: "I really liked what I heard. We both have the same ambition and that’s to get the Club back to the Championship and to challenge at the right end."
