Defender Delaney moves to Ipswich


Delaney hopeful of success at Ipswich

Ipswich have signed QPR left-back Damien Delaney on a two-year deal, Roy Keane's second signing since his appointment as manager.

Delaney, 27, played 59 times for Rangers following his switch from Hull City in January 2008.

The Republic of Ireland defender was reported to be the subject of interest from several Championship clubs.

Delaney is expected to be joined by other new players with Keane saying a further signing is "imminent".

Delaney is from Keane's hometown of Cork.

He told BBC Suffolk that although he enjoyed his time at Loftus Road, ambition was a factor in deciding to move to Ipswich.

"I genuinely thought they would be a successful team, obviously it hasn't panned out the way everyone hoped it would have done, " he said.

"I think Ipswich have a great chance of being successful, hopefully they will be successful this year and hopefully I'll be part of it."
