Ipswich Town have signed former Crystal Palace defender Jonathan Parr on a free transfer.

The 25-year-old was released by the London club at the end of last season, and has signed a two-year contract with the Tractor Boys.

He will help fill the void left by Aaron Cresswell, who joined Premier League side West Ham United last week.

Norwegian international Parr helped Palace reach the Premier League, and has targeted a return with Ipswich.

"I spoke to a number of clubs but I had a good feeling about Ipswich." Parr told the club's official website.

“I watched Ipswich play last season and they looked a good team. The manager told me what we wants from his team and how he’s looking to be pushing for a place in the top six.

“That’s where I want to be. Everyone wants to play at the highest level and I’ve joined Ipswich to help the Club get in the Premier League."
