A promising young left back. Fantastic news. Hopefully we've found a gem!

Few saw this coming I imagine. Don't know much about him except that I thought WBA were close to signing him. Good luck AC.

Welcome Aaron and congrats on donning the finest shirt in the world - do us proud. :crest:

Do we still need another LB, or will JOB and Pottsy Jr be back-up enough?

My cousin is an Ipswich season ticket holder and has been singing this lad's praises all season. Young and promising rather than old and past it is the way forward.

Never watched him play. Is he decent attacking? Was hoping for a Ricardo Gardner type as opposed to a Gerorge Mac type.

4m said by Jack looks high. He sounds a good player though

14 assists last season... most in the division... sounds like it

5 year deal. 4 million transfer fee.

I don't think we'll be getting any more left backs then.

Best of British, Aaron :thup:

Could turn out to be a real gem. I work with loads of tractor boys and they all rate this lad highly. Only reservation would be lack of Prem experience. But that'll come with time. :crest:

Not the AC at left back that some thought we might be getting!

Sounds promising though, good stats by all accounts.

Well done the Board!

I don't mind little Jack putting stuff on Twitter but his wages? That's a bit off. Maybe he was talking about his own wages for running the WH twitter.

Regardless, a really exciting signing - welcome to the club Aaron!

I guess he's first choice. Can't believe they'd sign someone like Olsson now as well.

English, young, brave move :thup:
