The duo were key members of Ipswich boss Paul Hurst’s Shrewsbury side which reached two Wembley finals last season and are now reunited with their former boss at Portman Road.

They arrive for a combined £2million, having put in formal transfer requests to force through their moves to Portman Road.

Nolan and Nsiala, both 26, have been in Ipswich since the start of this week to discuss personal terms and complete medicals.

That process was completed yesterday, with the move announced today following the departure of Martyn Waghorn to Derby for an initial £5m.

Both players have signed three-year deals at Portman Road, with the club holding the option to extend their contracts for a further 12 months.

Nolan will wear the No.11 shirt at Portman Road with Nsiala taking 22, having worn that number at Shrewsbury and Grimsby.

Both could make their Ipswich debuts on Saturday when the Blues head to Rotherham - the side which beat the Shrews in last season’s League One Play-Off Final.
