Aldershot Town have announced the signing of Ipswich Town midfielder Kundai Benyu.

Manager Gary Waddock is a keen admirer of the Zimbabwean and will be hoping that he can add depth to his squad who are pushing for a play off position. He told the club website: “Kundai will add extra depth and quality to the squad”.

Perhaps what is more interesting about this story is the fact that the transfer had been funded by a new scheme created by fans in order to expand the playing budget.

Kundai has a year left on his contract at Portman Road where he has found opportunities limited.
