Christian Walton has signed a contract with Ipswich until the end of the 2023/24 season.

Goalkeeper Christian Walton has joined League One Ipswich Town on a permanent deal, for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old moved to the Tractor Boys on loan at the beginning of the season, but has now signed a contract with Kieran McKenna’s side until June 2024.

Head coach Graham Potter said, “Christian has been a pleasure to work with during my time at the club, but this move gives him the opportunity to settle down and make a home for himself at a good club. We wish him all the best for his future.”

Walton made his debut for Albion as an 18-year-old during the 2014/15 campaign in the League Cup against Tottenham, and followed that up by making his league debut in a 1-0 win over Wigan. He made six first-team appearances for the club.
