After leaving the Millers, where he scored 41 goals in 123 games, the 29-year-old joins the team on a three-year agreement.
Ladapo has twice inspired Rotherham United to earn promotion from League One, scoring 32 goals in the process, and will be hoping to finish a third-tier trifecta after joining Ipswich Town.
The forward made a name for himself at Plymouth, netting 19 League One goals in 2018/19 before joining Rotherham United for £400,000 at the end of the season.
In January, he requested a transfer, but nothing came off it, and he kept playing until his contract ended at the end of the season.
Since Rotherham declined to exercise their 12-month option, the forward was completely left with no option but to join the Blues for free.
? "I thoroughly enjoy listening to him talk about his thought processes, views and objectives. He was a great influence in me coming here."
Freddie Ladapo spoke to iFollow Ipswich after agreeing to a three-year deal at Portman Road.

“I’ve had a long day doing paperwork, the medical and meeting people, but I am so pleased to have signed here,” Town’s new striker told the club after signing. Everyone has been so good to me already and shown me around the training ground and stadium,” he said.
The forward noted that;
“The chance to come and play for this club, with the history and fanbase it has, is brilliant for me. I am buzzing. The manager has plans and goals here, and this feels like the perfect fit for me.”
While Ipswich Town coach – Kieran McKenna added:
“We are really happy to have secured Freddie’s services. He is a proven goalscorer at this level but beyond that he brings qualities to the side that we think will be important for us.”
The coach stressed that;
“Freddie has a good physical stature, the ability to run beyond the defence, and is good in one-on-one situations. He’s a signing that we think can be really important for us.”
