All Whites forward Monty Patterson has signed a professional contract with English soccer club Ipswich Town.

Patterson, 19, has penned a one-year deal with the second-tier Championship side, with the option of a further 12 months.

He was previously part of the club's development squad.

Patterson has worked his way through under-17, under-20 and under-23 age-group teams before making his senior debut this year in New Zealand's successful Oceania Nations Cup campaign in Papua New Guinea and played in all five matches at the tournament.

Ipswich's squad includes defender and former All Whites skipper Tommy Smith, who has made 48 first-team appearances.
