Premier League Newcomers Ipswich Snap Omari Hutchinson From Chelsea In Club Record Deal

Ipswich are back in the Premier League after a 22-year absence.

Ipswich boss Kieran McKenna said of the 20-year-old's signing: "We're so pleased to bring Omari back on a permanent basis.

"Omari is someone we all enjoyed working with last season and the staff, his team-mates and supporters all saw how he grew and developed over the course of the year, which is testament to the hard work he put in.

"The impact he had on the team throughout the season, especially in the latter part, was evidence of that and he, like so many of his team-mates, played a significant part in that success for the club.

"We think Omari is a fantastic player and person to have at the club for the long-term future. He has a hunger to improve and show that he can compete and thrive in the Premier League."

Hutchinson has two caps for the Jamaica national team.

Ipswich start their Premier League campaign with a home game against Liverpool on the opening weekend.
