Ipswich Town have made their 15th signing of the summer, with Accrington Stanley defender Cameron Burgess becoming the latest player to join.

Burgess, who represents Australia internationally after switching allegiance from Scotland, has agreed a three-year deal after the two clubs negotiated an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-won more aerial duals than any other defender in League One last season.

He's the third player to arrive at Portman Road in the last week, following in the footsteps of Kyle Edwards and Hayden Coulson.
