Ipswich have swooped for former Wigan striker Nathan Ellington from Watford on a two-year contract.

Tractor Boys boss Paul Jewell will team up again with the striker for a third time.

Jewell paid £1.2million to take Ellington to Wigan in 2002 and, six years later, signed the forward on loan during his time in charge at Derby County.

"I've worked with Nathan before at Wigan and Derby and know his strengths," Jewell told the club's official website.

"He has shown he can score goals at this level and will add to the competition for places within the squad."
