"It ended up happening quicker than what I thought it would which is a good thing"

Cameron Burgess says that he hopes to bring further leadership and communication to the Town first-team after becoming the Club's 15th summer addition.

The centre-back completed a medical at St. George's Park, the training base of England's national teams, yesterday before finalising his move from Accrington Stanley earlier today.

Cam, now 25, has penned a three-year deal at Portman Road with the Club having the option to extend his stay by a further 12 months.

Asked what Town fans can expect of him this season, he told iFollow Ipswich: "Hopefully a bit of leadership, communication and organising. It’s a talented group of lads, there’s no denying that, so hopefully I can help drive the standards; work hard, roll our sleeves up and try and put in some good performances.

"I'm delighted. It's such an honour to be at such a massive club. Yesterday [Friday], I was preparing for a different game and now I’m stood here so it’s a bit of surprise but I’m buzzing to be here. It ended up happening quicker than what I thought it would which is a good thing.

"I don’t think anyone could turn it down in my position and many other positions as well. It’s a bit of a dream come true to progress, be at such a massive club and hopefully be part of some good things.

"I have a bit of affinity with the place already; I made my professional debut at Portman Road. I think it was when we got relegated to the Championship with Fulham. It was a Friday night on Sky. I played as a defensive-midfielder that night which was a bit of a strange one for me. It was an unbelievable experience and I can’t wait to experience it more."
