Town have confirmed the signing of winger Alan Judge from Brentford for a nominal fee, on a deal until the end of the season plus a year’s option.
Republic of Ireland international Judge, who was out of contract at Griffin Park at the end of the campaign, has made only made only seven starts and 17 sub appearances for the Bees this season, scoring twice.
Explaining Judge's Bees exit, Brentford manager Thomas Frank told their official site: “Alan has been a great player for Brentford for many years. He clearly loves the club and has given his all for Brentford.
"I know he has had some great moments at Brentford and I would like to wish him all the best for the future. I have enjoyed working with him during my time at Brentford.
“Alan has battled his way back from a very serious injury and is now fully fit.
"He has been able to contribute for us this season but there are players ahead of him at this time.
"Ipswich is somewhere he can go to get more football than he is likely to get here, and it is a good opportunity for him."
The former Blackburn, Plymouth (loan) and Notts County man, who will wear the number 31 shirt while with the Blues, suffered a broken leg at Portman Road in April 2016, an injury which kept him out of first-team action until January 2018.
Dubliner Judge, Paul Lambert's sixth signing of the January transfer window, previously came close to joining the Blues from the Magpies in the summer of 2013, however, he instead returned to Blackburn, where he had previously been a youth player, for a second spell.
