Ipswich Town have signed Notts County goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski for an undisclosed fee.

The Polish stopper has agreed a two-year deal at Portman Road, with the option of a further 12 months.

Bialkowski will compete with Dean Gerken for the number one spot, and will help fill the void left by Scott Loach who joined Rotherham United earlier this summer.

“I’m really happy to be an Ipswich Town player,” he told the club's official website.

“It’s been going on for a while and when that happens, you can get worried sometimes but I was always confident it would get done.

As soon as I heard they (Ipswich) definitely wanted me, my mind was made up straightaway.”
