LEE EVANS JOINS TOWN

4 June 2021

"Hopefully I will be part of a successful team because that’s what everyone associated with Ipswich wants"

Town have signed Wales international Lee Evans on a three-year deal.

The central midfielder, who will officially join the Club on 1 July as a free agent when his current contract with Wigan expires, is Blues’ second addition of the summer following yesterday’s arrival of Wes Burns for an undisclosed fee from Fleetwood.

Lee progressed through the youth ranks at Newport and went on to make 25 appearances for The Exiles, scoring three goals.

He joined Wolves in 2013, having loan spells at both Bradford and Wigan during his time at Molineux, before heading to Sheffield United.

A second loan spell at Wigan followed for the first half of the 2018/19 season, the 26-year-old then making the move to the DW Stadium permanent in January 2019 where he worked under Paul Cook. 

"This is a huge football club and it’s a massive honour to be here. It’s been a great day for me, signing for a club like this and I’m already looking forward to pre-season," Lee told iFollow Ipswich.

"I’ve had a few chats with the manager and he expressed his desire to bring me in. It’s an exciting move for me and having seen the Club today, with the facilities, I can’t wait to get going.

"I’ve played for the manager before and he has shown a lot of faith in me in bringing me here in a season when there is only one aim and that is to get promoted. That’s a big compliment to me and I can’t thank him enough.

"Hopefully I will be part of a successful team because that’s what everyone associated with Ipswich wants."

Lee’s arrival was announced on the Club’s social media channels by young Town fan Evelyn, who met the new signing in the Planet Blue superstore.
