The 28-year-old Scotland international has put pen to paper at Portman Road after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

Berra, who was available on a free transfer after leaving Wolves earlier this summer, had been linked with a host of clubs, but Town boss Mick McCarthy was able to clinch the deal.

McCarthy is a big admirer of Berra having signed and worked with him during his time in charge at Wolves and sees him as a key addition to his plans for the new season.

McCarthy told the East Anglian Daily Times: "He's signed a two-year deal. I'm delighted, it's a fantastic signing, he helped us get promoted at Wolves and keep us in the Premier League for two seasons.

"I'm surprised he hasn't got a club sooner and delighted we've got him. It's terrific for us."

Former Sunderland centre-back Titus Bramble has been on trial with Ipswich, where he started his career, and the 31-year-old came on as a second-half substitute in the 1-0 friendly win at Barnet on Saturday.

However, McCarthy has now ended his interest in signing Bramble following the arrival of Berra and he has also ruled out a loan deal with Tottenham for Bongani Khumalo.

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
