Ipswich Town have completed the loan signing of powerful Reading striker Dominic Samuel.

The 22-year-old will spend the rest of the season at Portman Road after the Blues beat a number of other clubs to land him.

Samuel was on loan at neighbours Colchester in 2013, and has also had temporary spells at Gillingham and Coventry City.

He is Ipswich's sixth signing of the transfer window.

In League One, Portsmouth striker Michael Smith has joined Northampton Town on loan for the rest of the season but winger Alfie Potter has been allowed to leave.

Ipswich Town have completed the signing of former Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor on a free transfer.

The 31-year-old has agreed an initial deal until the end of the season.

Taylor has been on trial with the club for the past week and has done enough to earn himself a short-term contract.

The experienced centre-back was most recently with American side Portland Timbers, but left by mutual consent last month.

Ipswich Town have signed winger Danny Rowe from non-league club Macclesfield Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old, who is the brother of former Peterborough United player Tommy Rowe, has agreed a two-and-a-half year contract at Portman Road.

Rowe has impressed in the Conference this season, scoring six times.

He becomes Ipswich's fifth signing of the transfer window, but won't be eligible to make his debut at Preston tomorrow.

It’s an exciting move for me, joining a massive club like Ipswich and I can’t wait to get going.

I know I have a lot to prove but I’ll be working as hard as I can to show everyone what I can do.

Meanwhile, Cambridge United striker Joe Pigott has joined Maidstone United on loan until the end of the season.

Colchester United have rejected a bid from local rivals Ipswich Town for their winger Brennan Dickenson.

The 23-year-old has been a big hit since joining on a free transfer in the summer.

The former Gillingham man has scored seven goals in 23 appearances to help the U's into the League Two play-off positions.

Ipswich are in the market for fresh recruits to help breathe life into their stuttering Championship campaign, and wrapped up a loan deal for Leeds midfielder Toumani Diagouraga yesterday.

Ipswich Town have completed the loan signing of Leeds United midfielder Toumani Diagouraga.

The former Peterborough United man has agreed a deal to stay at Portman Road until the end of the season.

29-year-old Diagouraga was a key part of the Brentford team that reached the Championship play-offs in 2014/15, before he signed for Leeds last January.

The Frenchman has struggled to get into Leeds' team this season though, with Garry Monk's men currently sitting 4th in The Championship.

Meanwhile, former Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor is training with Ipswich this week with a view to earning a contract until the end of the campaign.

Taylor is a free agent after leaving American side Portland Timbers last month.

"We have lost Adam Webster for the season so we are short on numbers and Steven Taylor would add that experience,” manager Mick McCarthy said.

"He will come in and train this week and we will see how it goes. We know about his quality."

Norwich City defender Martin Olsson has joined Premier League strugglers Swansea City for an undisclosed fee.

The Canaries have made no secret that they will have to sell players this month in order to bring new faces in, and it's believed that Olsson's departure is worth around £4.5 million.

The Swedish international made 129 for Norwich during his four-year stay at Carrow Road, and recently signed a new contract with the club.

Olsson has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Welsh side who are currently bottom of the Premier League, and a point from safety.

Meanwhile, Ipswich Town have signed free agent Jordan Spence on a contract until the end of the season.

He's the second January arrival at Portman Road so far, with Forest Green striker Kieffer Moore joining from Forest Green Rovers over the weekend.
