Ipswich have agreed a deal to sign Hearts midfielder Ryan Stevenson.
Stevenson is set to sign an 18-month deal at Portman Road after Hearts accepted a fee in the region of £50,000 for the 27-year-old.
Stevenson has not played for Hearts since December due to a wage dispute at Tynecastle and the club rejected a bid from Crawley Town for his services.
Town boss Paul Jewell has moved to bring in the former Ayr United man as he looks to bolster his squad before the close of the transfer window and Stevenson is delighted to make the move to Ipswich
"I had a few other teams interested but when a club of the statue of Ipswich comes in for you, you take it," Stevenson told the club's official website.
"It's a massive opportunity for me, too big to turn down and I can't wait to get going.
"I'm looking forward to training with the lads tomorrow and I want to hit the ground running, impress the manager and force my way into the side.
"Playing in England has always been a big ambition of mine and to have a chance of playing for such a big club and alongside so many top players is fantastic."
