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.”

"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."
