Ipswich Town have signed goalkeeper Christian Walton on loan from Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion for the rest of the season.

“He’s a commanding goalkeeper, a great lad and and I’m absolutely delighted that we have acquired him,” Ipswich boss Paul Cook told the club website.

Walton’s previous loans have taken him to Bury, Plymouth, Luton, Southend, Wigan and Blackburn, where he spent the entire 2019-20 season.

Ipswich are currently 21st in League One, having failed to win any of their first five matches.

Walton said: “The gaffer has put together a strong squad and I have good experience at this level so I’m hoping I can bring that to the challenge.”
