Ipswich Town have secured the services of Guirane N'Daw from Saint-Etienne.
The 27-year old Senegalese midfielder, who spent time on loan with Birmingham City last term, has signed a season-long loan with the Tractor Boys delighting manager Paul Jewell.
"I'm delighted to add Guirane to the squad and he's coming here for a year," manager Paul Jewell told the club's official website.
"We've been trying to get him for a while, so I'm pleased to finally bring him in. He will bring some physical presence and stature to the squad.
"He's a good addition to the squad but first he will need to earn the right to get into the side."
