Manager Mick McCarthy has confirmed Ipswich Town have signed Shelbourne's Republic of Ireland Under-21 winger Dylan Connolly on an 18-month contract.

The 19-year-old, who scored 12 goals in 27 games for Shelbourne, had trials at Ipswich and Bolton in the summer.

"He's blisteringly quick, got a fair bit of ability and got a goal in him," McCarthy told BBC Radio Suffolk.

"He'll play in the Under-21s at the start, but I've signed him with a view to playing with [the first team]."
