Former United winger joins Ipswich after Leeds United move falls through

Ipswich Town

Cameron Stewart has joined Ipswich Town following his release from Hull City.

Cameron Stewart had joined Leeds United on loan in January from Hull City and the deal was set to be made permanent after his contract had expired with The Tigers. Stewart was set to sign a three-year-deal at Elland Road but following a change of ownership and management he suddenly found himself unwanted.

He has now put pen to paper on another three-year-deal, this time with Mick McCarthy's Ipswich Town. The Tractor Boys will become Stewart's seventh club despite the winger being just 23-years-old.

Having started out at Manchester United, he made his professional debut on loan at Yeovil Town, going on to make six appearances for them before moving to Hull on loan before that was made permanent in January 2011.

However he fell out of favour under Steve Bruce and loan spells in the Championship at Burnley, Blackburn Rovers and Charlton Athletic followed before playing for Leeds. Stewart has never really got close to fulfilling his potential but he needs some stability and perhaps that can come at Ipswich Town.

A talented, pacey winger, there is no doubt he can be a great player in this division, or else so many clubs wouldn't have taken a chance on him. McCarthy obviously believes in him and that is shown by the three-year-deal he has been given.
