The former Cardiff City defender will join from July 1st on a two-year deal.
The deal runs for two years with the option of a further 12-month extension and the Wales Under-21 international is itching to get started at Portman Road. He took to Twitter to express his joy:
The 20-year old had an extended trial with the Blues last season and featured for the Under-21 development side on a regular basis.
Yorwerth is yet to make his senior debut but Ipswich have high hopes for the youngster next season.
His capture comes as McCarthy looks to bolster a squad that fell at the Championship play-off semi-final stage last season. His most important task this summer could be retaining the services of Daryl Murphy, with the Republic of Ireland international linked with a Premier League move recently, as reported by the Birmingham Mail.
The Blues' prospects may have been helped by club legend Marcus Stewart’s announcement that Murphy would be a ‘fool’ for leaving.
“For me he’s not going to go anywhere. I think he’d be a fool to leave Ipswich – that’s my opinion,” he is quoted as saying in the East Anglian Times.
“He’s got to stay at Ipswich because they have got a really good chance at getting promoted this season, either automatically or via the play-offs.”
