John-Jules, nephew of actor Danny, joined the Gunners aged eight.

He has progressed through the academy but is yet to make his senior debut.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Blackpool and Sheffield on Wednesday before his campaign was cut short by a muscle injury.

Now the 6ft striker is desperate to get back on track with the Tractor Boys.

The England youth international told Ipswich Internal Media: “It’s been a busy day but I’m delighted to start here and meet the lads.

“I had a meeting with the manager and the people around me had only positive things to say about the club.

“The way Ipswich play suits me. The style of play was an important decision for me as a player on loan.

“I’ve played in Ligue 1 before, so hopefully I’ll get used to it quickly and score goals for the team.


“Last season was one of my worst with this injury, but I hope to bounce back this season. I’m back in shape now and ready to go.”

City boss McKenna added of Ipswich’s fourth summer signing: “There’s a lot to admire in Tyreece’s game.

“He’s someone I’ve known and followed throughout his youth career at Arsenal and in England.

“He’s a really talented and versatile striker who can play in a number of different positions.

“He has a very high technical level and can play with both feet.

“If he can get regular form then he is an extremely talented player with very high potential. We are very happy to have him on board.”
