Young left back Tommy Smith has signed his first professional deal at Portman Road.
The 18-year-old has committed to the club until the summer of 2022, with a year option on top.
Smith made his first-team Town debut as a half-time substitute in the EFL Trophy win against Peterborough back in December.
He's currently on loan at Bury Town, where he's been impressing as the Ram Meadow outfit push for promotion from Isthmian League North.
Smith is one of nine homegrown players to have made their senior bow for the Blues this season.
The others are Bailey Clements, Alex Henderson, Tawanda Chirewa, Armando Dobra, Liam Gibbs, Tommy Hughes, Brett McGavin and Tyreece Simpson.
