"I know the owners want to invest in the squad and want us to be a force in the Championship"

New signing Sam Morsy says that his immediate aim is to help the Club return to the Championship.

The 29-year-old, who has penned a three-year deal at Portman Road after joining from Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee, was the Club's 19th and final summer addition on deadline day.

Central midfielder Sam believes that the Blues have the manager - his former boss, Paul Cook - and squad to win promotion this term.

"The immediate aim is to get promoted and that’s what I’ve come to the Club to do," he told iFollow Ipswich.

"You can’t dress it up, the aim is promotion given the size of this Club, the players and the manager.

"I know the owners want to invest in the squad and want us to be a force in the Championship. They’ve backed the manager and the manager has been promoted from this league before so it’s exciting. 

"There’s some very good players here. With Kyle Edwards; my good friend, Lee Peltier, has had nothing but good things to say about him and about how good he is. Obviously, the [Bersant] Celina signing is a big one, Conor Chaplin scored a lot of goals in the Championship. 

Sam will be made to wait for his League debut for the Club due to a three-game suspension which was upheld earlier this week.

Asked what Town fans can expect to see from him when he does grace the Portman Road pitch, he added: "I play in midfield. I like to get the ball from the defence and start attacks. I break up play. I try to control and dictate games.

"I don’t want to be banned but it gives me time to find a place to live here and sort out personal things so when I am playing, I’m fully focused on the job.

"I’ve got to fully adapt to Ipswich now and hopefully have a good season."
