Ipswich Town have made their second signing of the day after Tom Lawrence joined from Leicester City on a season-long loan deal as confirmed by the club website.
Earlier today, the Tractor Boys added a new striker to their ranks after they confirmed that they signed Leon Best on a one-year deal and now they have continued what has been a very fruitful day for them after Lawrence joined on a season-long loan from the English champions.
The 22-year-old midfielder, who will have to wait to start training with Ipswich as he will be part of the Wales squad to face Moldova, signed for Leicester in 2014 following their promotion to the Premier League but has struggled to break into the first team and most of his time since signing for Leicester has been spent going out on loan to other clubs. And now he is going to be doing that after signing for Ipswich.
Lawrence started his career in the Everton youth system before moving on to the Manchester Untied academy. After loan spells with Carlisle United and Yeovil Town, he did eventually make one appearance for United when Ryan Giggs was caretaker manager. In 2014 he joined Leicester but has only made three appearances for them and has been loaned out to Rotherham United, Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City over his two years being contracted to the Foxes.
Following the signing of Best earlier today, Lawrence becomes Ipswich’s sixth signing of the summer after Adam Webster, Grant Ward, Paul Digby and Conor Grant moved to the club earlier in the summer.
