BOSS THRILLED WITH EVANS ADDITION

4 June 2021

"To sign a player of his class and calibre is fantastic for the supporters and for this football club"

Paul Cook says he’s absolutely delighted to be reunited with Lee Evans at Portman Road

The Town boss signed the 26-year-old Wales international when he was in charge at Wigan and is now relishing seeing the midfielder in a Blues shirt, with Lee having agreed a three year deal with the Club.

“Lee has got everything a midfielder needs,” Paul told the Club website.

“His energy levels are great, he covers the distances that midfielders need to in the game now. He’s good on the ball and he has the physicality.

“He’s got a terrific attitude to the game and what’s most important, he’s a great lad.

“I’m thrilled we have got him here, to sign a player of his class and calibre is fantastic for the supporters and for this football club.      

“I think the supporters should be excited about the players we have signed and about the players we are hopefully about to sign.”

Lee officially joins Town on July 1 as a free agent when his contract with Wigan ends and becomes the second signing of the new Gamechanger 20 ownership following yesterday’s arrival of Wes Burns.
