Ipswich Town have recently confirmed that Gwion Edwards has left the club to sign for Wigan Athletic ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
Edwards has been with the club since 2018, having previously been on the books with Crawley Town and Peterborough United earlier in his career, and he made a positive impact at Portman Road.
He went on to make 109 appearances in total for Ipswich Town, and played his part for them, with a number of ups and downs along the way.
They had previously been playing their football in the Championship, but have been in the third tier since 2019, and they’ll be eager to return to the Championship at the earliest of opportunities.
But they’ll be doing that without Edwards, who has gone on to sign for Wigan Athletic ahead of the new season. The winger has sent a parting message to everyone associated with Ipswich Town, and wished them well for the future.
I would like to thank everyone at @IpswichTown who have come and gone over my time at the club! I have enjoyed my time here and met some real good people on and off the pitch who will be friends for life! I wish the club and the fans all the best in the future. #itfc pic.twitter.com/QFSZa6xr9l

Wigan finished this year’s campaign 20th in the Championship table, and will be eager to build on some strong performances towards the end of the 2020/21 season, as they turn their attentions to the new campaign, which is set to get under way in August.

It’s a classy message from Edwards and he’ll be missed at Portman Road.
A summer of change was always likely for Ipswich Town, as they prepare for another season in the third tier of English football.
Edwards has been a fantastic servant to the Tractor Boys over the years, and it’ll be interesting to see how they cope without him next term.
With Rekeem Harper looking set to arrive at Portman Road this summer, he certainly strikes me as the sort of player that is capable of filling the void left by Edwards.
