Last season Ipswich Town secured a trip to the Premier League and will play in the highest English division for the first time in 22 years. But, “tractor boys” do not want to repeat the fate of Luton, which flew back to the Championship immediately after leaving there and are ready to spare no expense for this purpose.

Thus, the press service of the Premier League newcomer reported that Ipswich bought the contract of winger Omari Hutchinson from Chelsea, adding that his transfer is the most record-breaking in the history of the club. The "tractor boys" did not give exact figures, but according to Transfermarkt, the transfer fee is €26 million.

The club's previous transfer record was held for almost a quarter of a century, when in 2000 Ipswich gave an incomplete seven million euros to Wimbledon for left-back Herman Hreidarsson.

Last season, Hutchinson was extraordinary in helping the "tractor boys" win promotion to the Premier League, scoring 11 goals and giving six assists in the team's 50 games in all competitions.
