Several news outlets are reporting that Giovani dos Santos will join Ipswich Town FC for the remainder of this season.

If all the proper paperwork goes through in time, Giovani could play his first match on Saturday against Reading.

Ipswich Town FC confirms the signing on their web-site.

Ipswich is currently 10th in the Championship table, trailing leader Wolverhampton by twenty points.

Club Manager Jim Magilton welcomed the news, stating: “Gio has got a great pedigree having been at Barcelona and playing 30 odd games for them and…He’s played games for Tottenham in the Premier League and in Europe and he will bring some added quality to the squad. He is with us for the rest of the season and will go straight into the squad for the Reading game and be in contention to play.”

Giovani will likely see playing time considering that a key squad member, Jon Walters, has been sidelined for the rest of this season due to ruptured ankle ligaments.
