Former Manchester United player and Sunderland manager, Roy Keane, has been announced to the public as the new boss of Ipswich Town.

The dismissal of Jim Magilton on Wednesday has lead to the ex-Irish international signing a two year contract with them.

He took his last team, Sunderland, to the top tier of English football. He resigned from manager there in December, but now hopes to make the same impression further south.

When leaving the north of England he said: "I'm happy to move house. I'm not tied to Manchester."

He believes Ipswich has the team, but just need to be pushed to make it to the Premiership:

"I truly believe I am joining a club that has the potential, ambition, and infrastructure to once again be a Premier League side."
