Ecuador forward Jeremy Sarmiento has joined Ipswich on loan from Brighton for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old spent the first half of the season on loan at West Brom and has previously made 14 Premier League appearances for Brighton.

Sarmiento told Ipswich’s official website: “I’m very excited to be joining Ipswich at a time when they have been on a great run since winning promotion to the Championship.

“Ipswich were always there, after interest in the summer which didn’t quite work out, but I’m here now and I’m ready to do my best.”

Brighton technical director David Weir added: “This is a good move for Jeremy in terms of his development.

“We wish him every success at Ipswich and we’re looking forward to following his progress in the second half of the season.”
