‘A decent signing’ – Ipswich Town in talks with 27-y/o over potential summer switch: Opinion

Published

on

Ipswich Town are said to be in talks with Gillingham goalkeeper, Tomas Holy over a potential summer switch to the newly relegated League One side according to the East Anglian Daily Times. 

Holy is out of contract with the League One team, which means that he is free to talk to other clubs over a move away from the Gills.

He made 52 appearances last season, as Gillingham finished 13th in the league table, which capped off a strong season for the shot-stopper.

Ipswich are likely to be in the market for additional depth between the sticks, with Dean Gerken not having his contract at Portman Road renewed.

The Tractor Boys will be hoping they can make an immediate return to the Championship, following their relegation last season, in a shocking spell for the club on the pitch.

But would Holy be a good signing for Ipswich if they completed the deal?

We discuss….

Gary Hutchinson: 

“They need a fresh outlook, starting at the back and working forward.

“Holy is a decent keeper, I wouldn’t say a great one but Ipswich have to cut their cloth accordingly.

“I’m very surprised they’ve not spoken to Christy Pym if I’m honest.

“Still, Holy would represent an established League One shot-stopper.”

Jacob Potter: 

“He’d be a good signing for the level they’re currently at.

“Holy has proven experience in League One, and Ipswich need a new goalkeeper that will be on lower wages ahead of next season.

“Holy has been impressive with Gillingham this season, and will surely not pass up the opportunity of moving to a club that will potentially be back in the Championship in the near future.”

Toby Wilding: 

“This could be a decent signing.

“Holy knows his way around League One, which could be helpful to an Ipswich side who have spent the last 17 years in the Championship.

“You do however wonder if Holy could make the step up to the Championship, something in which Ipswich are looking to do quickly.

“This leaves the long-term logic behind this move potentially under scrutiny in 12 months time should Ipswich do what they are aiming to do this season.”
