Former AFC Wimbledon striker Joe Pigott has signed a three-year contract with Ipswich Town.
The 27-year-old became a free agent on July 1 when his deal with the Dons expired.
And Pigott has joined the Tractor Boys, who are one of the favourites for automatic promotion from League One in the 2021-22 season.
“It was a very tough decision to leave Wimbledon,” said Pigott. “I was really comfortable there and happy but felt that if I wanted to improve and keep going forward then I had to take on a new challenge.
“There was interest from clubs above League One but Ipswich is a massive club and it feels the right move for me.
“All the foundations are in place, with what’s been going on behind the scenes and when you speak to people here who show belief in you, then that means a lot.
“It’s an exciting move for me and I can’t wait to get going now. Obviously promotion is the aim but hopefully we can kick on from there as well.”
Ipswich boss Paul Cook added: “To get a lad of Joe’s quality across the line is an absolutely massive plus for everyone at the club.
“Twenty goals last season speaks volumes for itself. The reality is that if you don’t score goals, you won’t win football games. To get someone of Joe’s calibre in, with his goalscoring record; we’re all excited and looking forward to working with him.”
