Ipswich Town have signed former Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake on a deal until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old arguably played the best football of his career to date under the management of current Tractor Boys boss Mick McCarthy at Molineux, most notably bagging The Championship Golden Boot for two consecutive seasons in 2007/08 and 2008/09.

However, the Cambridge-born forward was released by Wolves following their relegation to League One last season.

Speaking to the club's official website, Ebanks-Blake admitted that his previous links to the Ipswich management team were a key factor in his decision to sign:

“I’m delighted to get the deal done and finally be an Ipswich player.

“It’s been on cards for a while now and I’m just pleased we’ve managed to get everything done and dusted. I’m here now and in the mix with the rest of the lads to play my part for the team.

“I’ve worked with the gaffer and TC [Terry Connor] before and we’ve had a lot of success in the past. They played a big part in me wanting to come here."
