Former St Mirren goalkeeper Vaclav Hladky has signed for Ipswich Town, following a year-long stint with Salford City.

The Czech Republic keeper signed for Salford last summer following a brilliant spell with St Mirren. He was a standout in England’s League Two last season and his form has earned him a move to Ipswich Town, who were keen on signing Dundee United goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist.

Hladky said: “It’s been an absolutely perfect day. I’ve signed the contract and I’m so happy to be here, Ipswich Town is a huge club so it was a quick decision. I got the offer and I said ‘yes I want to be there’ straight away. I share the vision of the Club and I can’t wait to get started.”

Ipswich Town manager Paul Cook added: “The goalkeeper is such an important position on the pitch and once again our owners have backed us with this signing. He will have a massive part to play for us next season. This is another part of the jigsaw that we are putting together.”
