Ipswich Town forward Oli Hawkins has completed a move to Mansfield Town.

The 29-year-old, who joined the Tractor Boys 12 months ago from Portsmouth on a free transfer, has arrived at the One Call Stadium for an undisclosed fee.

Hawkins made 20 appearances for Town in League One last term, finding the net just once.

Mansfield boss Nigel Clough told the club's website: “Oli will add a real presence in both penalty areas, something which we missed last season, both defensively and offensively.

“He’s an unselfish player and his assists’ ratio is very good, but his presence in both penalty areas is the main reason why we’re signing him.

“He’s been playing in teams who have competed towards the top end of League One in the last few seasons and we’re excited to add him to our existing line-up of strikers.”

A statement on the Ipswich website read: "We thank Oli for his efforts while at Portman Road, and wish him the very best for the future."

Hawkins has signed a two-year deal with the League Two outfit.
