Manchester City winger Alex Henshall has joined Ipswich Town on a two-year deal after he impressed during a loan spell at the club last season.

Henshall joined City at the age of 16 after spending the previous eight years at Swindon Town, but has failed to impress for their Elite Development Squad, spending the last two years on loan at Chesterfield, Bristol Rovers and then the final six weeks of last season at Mick McCarthy's side before being released by the Premier League champions.

England U17 international

Despite him falling out of favour at City, there is no denying that Henshall is a real talent, having been capped 17 times by England at under-17 level, scoring one goal in the process and helping them reach the semi-finals of the 2011 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship

While Scott Sellars was Head of Academy Coaching at Manchester City, he said that the winger 'looks like a real talent'. And, Henshall will be hoping this move can be the kick-start to a bright career in the game.

No disgrace

Given the plethora of talent available to Manuel Pellegrini, it's no disgrace for Henshall that he's been unable to force his way into the first team at the Etihad Stadium.

And, with his Manchester City dream now over, the youngster has a chance to start again in the second tier of English football with the Tractor Boys.

Promotion push

McCarthy will be hoping to push Ipswich Town towards promotion next season, having seen his side miss out on the playoffs last term.
