Ipswich Town

Duo set for Ipswich Town departures



Striker James Norwood and midfielder Tom Carroll will both be released by Ipswich Town at the end of this season, a report from TWTD has revealed.

Norwood joined the Tractor Boys from Tranmere Rovers back in the summer of 2019, and has gone on to score 27 goals in 87 appearances for the club across all competitions.

Carroll meanwhile, joined Ipswich as a free agent last summer, following his release by Championship side QPR.

Since then, the midfielder has managed a total of just 17 appearances for the club in total, failing to score or provide an assist in that time.

Does Portman Road have a bigger or smaller capacity than these 20 stadiums?

City Ground?

Now, with both players set to see their contracts at Portman Road expire this summer, it seems their time with Ipswich could be about to come to an end.

According to this latest update, both players met with Ipswich manager Kieran McKenna earlier this week, where they were informed that they would not be given new deals to extend their stays at the club.

As a result, both Norwood and Carroll will be able to join new clubs for free when the transfer window opens in early June.

The Verdict

It is getting to that time of year where clubs have to make decisions and players, and these don’t feel like a huge surprise from Ipswich.

Neither Norwood or Carroll have really been able to establish themselves as regular features for the Tractor Boys this season, due to both form and fitness.

As a result, they are two obvious candidates to be moved on by the club, in order to make space for summer signings who could potentially improve the squad.

Even so, both these players are solid options for certain sides at this sort of level, so you would imagine there will be interest in their services once their departures from Ipswich are confirmed.
