Ipswich sign Martin from Man Utd

Lee Martin
Martin has loan experience at four Championship clubs

Ipswich Town have signed midfielder Lee Martin from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old, who spent time on loan at Nottingham Forest last season, has put pen to paper on a four-year deal at Portman Road.

Town chief executive Simon Clegg said Martin could be a "major force" and brings "huge strengths" to the team.

Martin is Ipswich manager Roy Keane's third close season signing, following Damien Delaney and Troy Brown.

Martin told BBC Radio Suffolk: "It's an important time in my career, it's a decision that's been on the cards for the last couple of years.

"I've come to an ambitious club and I want to do well."
