Ipswich Town have signed Bristol Rovers forward Ellis Harrison on a two-year-old for an undisclosed fee.
The former Wales U21 international has been confirmed to be joining Town after days of speculation surrounding his future at the League 1 club.
Rovers gaffer Darrell Clarke decided to leave Harrison out of last Saturday’s friendly against Forest Green Rovers and stated after the game then he is set to leave the club for a Championship side without directly stating which one.
The forward who netted 49 goals in 204 appearances for the Bristol side, is a pacey, tall striker who can play off of a creative forward or even play as one himself.
At just under six-foot, a quality (Sorry Kieffer!), taller forward is something which Town have been needing ever since Murphy left so I feel as if this is some good business.
Hurst’s knowledge of the lower leagues is an asset to our transfer targets so I trust that he would only pay a high fee on someone who was generally worth the money.
Although the fee seems lot for another player from a lower league, many Bristol Rovers fans seemed sad to see him leave on social media.
