The Millers signed the 29-year-old in 2019, but he was anticipated to leave after submitting a transfer request in January.

Rotherham United has now confirmed that after his current contract at AESSEAL New York Stadium expires, striker Freddie Ladapo will join Ipswich Town.

Last season, Ladapo appeared 41 times for the Millers in all competitions, but he explained his choice to join Ipswich Town.

I’ve had a long day doing paperwork, the medical and meeting people, but I am so pleased to have signed here,” Town’s new striker told the club after signing. Everyone has been so good to me already and shown me around the training ground and stadium. The chance to come and play for this club, with the history and fanbase it has, is brilliant for me. I am buzzing. The manager has plans and goals here, and this feels like the perfect fit for me.”

While Ipswich Town coach – Kieran McKenna added:

We are really happy to have secured Freddie’s services. He is a proven goalscorer at this level but beyond that he brings qualities to the side that we think will be important for us. Freddie has a good physical stature, the ability to run beyond the defence, and is good in one-on-one situations. He’s a signing that we think can be really important for us.”
