Official: Ipswich Town Secure Signing Of Dominic Iorfa From Wolves

English second tier club Ipswich Town has secure the service of Nigerian international Dominic Iorfa from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Ipswich Town has added Dominic Iorfa to the squad on a season-long loan deal from Wolves. The England U21 has agreed to the Portman Road switch subsequent to passing his medical at Town.

As indicated by the club statement on its official site has moved quickly to replace Josh Emmanuel, who joined Rotherham on Friday on loan, with Iorfa now set to fight it out with Jordan Spence for the right back berth at Town.

The 22-year-old has made 83 starts in the Championship for his parent club in the course of the last three seasons and was a part of the England Under-21 squad which as of late achieved the semi-finals of the European Championships.

Wolves are splashing the money this summer though and have officially landed five new defenders, including Ghanian international Phil Ofosu-Ayeh.

“Mick McCarthy adds exciting England U21 talents to his ranks as he shapes his squad ahead of the new campaign.

“I’m thrilled to have got Dominic,” McCarthy told the club website. “He is an England U21 international who has played close in 100 league games and knows the Championship well.

“He is very athletic, has got great pace and can play at centre-half as well as a right-back and is equally good in both roles.

“With the defenders, we already have here in the squad and with Dominic coming in, we have really good options in that area.”

Iorfa said: “It looks like a good training ground and I remember the last time I came here it was a good atmosphere. Whenever I’ve played Ipswich it’s been a tough game and I don’t think we ever beat them, so I know what Ipswich are all about.

“The manager told me he wants to get me on board and said what positions he plans to use me in. He knows I can play centre-half as well as right-back and can give him options if he plays 4-4-2 or 3-5-2.

“He’s confident we can have a good season as a team and maybe push for the play-offs.”
