Confirmed : Irish-Nigerian duo sign professional deals with Ipswich Town

Through their official website, EFL League One club Ipswich Town announced on Friday that four academy scholars have signed their first professional contracts at Portman Road.


Promising Nigeria-eligible teenagers Edwin Agbaje and Jesse Nwabueze are part of the quartet who agreed new deals with The Tractor Boys.


Agbaje and Nwabueze have both signed one-year contracts, with Ipswich Town having the option to extend their stay by a further twelve months. 


Agbaje predominantly plays as a fullback while Nwabueze can be deployed as a winger and attacker.


The defender has been a player of Ipswich Town since September 2020, joining them after stops at Irish clubs Shamrock Rovers, Edenderry Town and Klub Kildare.


Agbaje impressed in the 2020-2021 FA Youth Cup, scoring against Swindon Town in the fourth round before finding the net in a 2-1 loss to Liverpool in the semifinal.


Nwabueze and Agabje are eligible to represent Republic of Ireland internationally apart from Nigeria.
