Ipswich Town have signed 18-year-old Jack Doherty from Waterford United on a two-year deal.

The midfielder, who spent time at Portman Road as a trainee, travelled with Mick McCarthy’s side during their pre-season training camp in Ireland.

McCarthy told BBC Sport: “He trained in Ireland with us and wasn't embarrassed by being there and kind of stood out. There's a real potential in him. He needs to put some [weight] on.”

The Clonmel-born left winger has been capped at Under-18 Schools level. 

Ipswich finished in 14th place in the npower Championship last season.
