Ipswich Town manager, Mick McCarthy, has confirmed that the club have signed midfielder Kevin Bru, who was on trial at the club, according to the East Anglian Daily Times.
The French-Mauritian midfielder, released by Bulgarian club Levski Sofia, becomes the second player today to sign a contract with the club, after striker Balint Bajner also put pen to paper at Portman Road, after being released by Borussia Dortmund.
Tractor Boys’ manager, Mick McCarthy, has now made seven summer signings after keeper Bartosz Bialkowski, full-back Jonathan Parr and wingers Cameron Stewart, Stephen Hunt and Alex Henshall joined the club earlier in the Transfer Window.
Speaking at the club’s Open Day, McCarthy said,
“Kevin’s a midfield player who looks a really gifted footballer. He was in the school of excellence at Clairfontaine (French National Football Centre), he’s got a good background to him.”
He went on to say,
“Sometimes people drift for a while and I’m hoping that he can give us something. He looks a nice, talented, positive footballer who plays forward passes.”
Bru made 20 appearances for former club Levski Sofia, scoring 1 goal, before being released at the end of last season.
