2 Ipswich Town wonderkids we could see emerge and save the club a lot of money this summer

Ipswich Town are still fighting hard in an attempt to make the Sky Bet League One play-offs this summer, with the Tractor Boys currently sitting just three points off sixth place Lincoln City at the time of writing. 

Two goalless performances in a row will have worried Paul Cook however as he continues to mix and match his squad in an attempt to find some consistency since taking charge of the East Anglian outfit following the departure of Paul Lambert.

Expectations continue to be particularly high at a club that has just taken on new owners and they will undoubtedly be seeking to make a return to the Championship this season if possible, with their chances of making the play-offs still remarkably in reach despite their recent performances.

They take on AFC Wimbledon this Tuesday in the knowledge that a win on the road would put them level with the top six and that will add extra motivation for what is one of the most experienced squads in the entire division.

Are these 17 facts about Ipswich Town’s club badge true or false?

Here, we take a look at TWO Ipswich Town wonderkids that we could see emerge and save the club a lot of money this summer…

Armando Dobra 

The versatile Albanian youth international has featured a lot more frequently for his boyhood club this term and could well become a permanent fixture in the starting line up if his performances continue to improve.

Capable of playing anywhere along the front line, Dobra possesses a good low centre of gravity and is capable of drifting into wide areas in order to find pockets of space.

He was handed a start by Cook last time out against Milton Keynes but largely failed to make much of an impact despite his obvious potential.

If he kicks on between now and the end of the campaign, there is no reason why this young prospect can’t be sold on for a profit somewhere down the line as he currently has two years remaining on his current deal.

Elkan Baggott 

The young centre back has been heavily tipped to have a great future career at the club, with the teenager currently plying his trade out on loan with King’s Lynn of the National League until the end of the season.

Baggott has two years remaining on his current deal with the Tractor Boys and will be hopeful that his loan spell will be the gateway towards more first team minutes for his parent club in the long run after making his debut this season.

Both Leeds and West Ham United have been linked with a move for the youngster over the past few months and as a result Ipswich could have a fight on their hands to keep the defender at Portman Road.

However with the aforementioned security of there being a couple of years left on his contract with the League One side, it would take a sizeable fee to prise him away from his boyhood club.
