Lee handed Shefki's 32 shirt
“Alan has always done well against us, although his time at Cardiff has not gone as well as he would have liked.
“Like Shefki Kuqi we plan to kick-start his career. He does not have the same pace, but Alan can run all day like the Finn,” said Joe Royle.
Alan Lee will run out at Portman Road in his number 32 shirt against Sheffield United this Saturday, where he is expected to go straight into the starting line-up.
The East Anglian Daily Times has reported that there is a proviso in his Town contract that it can be extended by a further year - and for the fee to rise by £50,000 if certain contingencies are met.
