Ipswich Town boss Jim Magilton believes he has landed a bargain in signing midfielder Velice Sumulikoski from Turkish side Bursaspor. The 26-year-old FYR Macedonia international cost Town £600,000, but paid part of that fee back with his first goal for the club in the 2-1 win over Blackpool at the weekend. Magilton told the Evening Star: "He has brought us composure, experience and knowledge in a very important area of the pitch and he has definitely got goals in him. "He arrives on the edge of the box and if he continues hitting them like that they will keep going in. "We could tell almost straight away that he was a player who had fallen through the net when we were lucky enough to have him on trial."
