IPSWICH Town star Hermann Hreidarsson today signed for Charlton and immediately paid tribute to Blues fans he reluctantly leaves behind.

The 28-year-old central defender or left back, who is moving to the Premiership Addicks for a bargain £900,000, said: "I'm joining Charlton and look forward to a new chapter in my career.

"But I'd like to say that I've had a great, great time at Ipswich and I'd like to especially thank the fans. They've been brilliant to me, really brilliant. I couldn't have wished for better supporters and I'm so sorry to be leaving them.

"However, life moves on and I think I'm leaving one great club to join another. If I can enjoy as good a relationship with the Charlton fans as I have with the Ipswich fans then it will be marvellous.

"Charlton are a club in the Premiership and I look forward to some great times with them. I wish Ipswich all the best for the rest of the season."
