SIGNING OF SAINT LUCIAN FOOTBALLER TO IPSWICH TOWN

Ipswich Town have completed the signing of versatile defender Janoi Donacien from Accrington Stanley.

The 24-year-old joins initially on loan due to the fact the Blues are still ironing out a few work permit issues for a player who hails from the Caribbean island of St Lucia.

Once that is all sorted though, an agreement is in place for a £750k permanent switch.

Capable of playing centre-back or in either full-back position, Donacien started 49 times in all competitions for a Stanley side that conceded just 46 goals on their way to claiming the League Two title last season.

“Ever since I heard about the move I’ve been so excited,” said Donacien. “I didn’t hear about the interest the normal way and when I did I just thought ‘wow’. It’s a great club and I thought ‘we just need to get this done’.

“I know it’s a massive club and it’s a sleeping giant in this league.”

Reflecting on his time at Accrington, he said: “We did something the club probably never imagined they would do. I had an unbelievable two years and I wish the club all the best.

“But when a club like Ipswich comes in for you there’s not much you can say.”
