Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has told BBC Radio Suffolk that the club have no chance of making Tom Lawrence’s loan move into a permanent one, reports BBC Sport.
Tom Lawrence is currently on a season long loan at Ipswich Town from reigning Premier League champions Leicester City and he is enjoying his best campaign to date.
The attacking midfielder, who can also play as a winger or as a striker, has been the standout performer in an underwhelming season for the Tractor Boys.
With 11 goals and 9 assists in all competitions this year, Tom Lawrence has caught the eye of potential suitors and Mick McCarthy believes that he deserves a shot in the Premier League.
Since joining Leicester in 2014 from Manchester United, the Wales international star has only managed 3 league appearances for the Foxes and has been sent out on loan to Rotherham, Blackburn, Cardiff and Ipswich.
“I think Tom will have his heart set on the Premier League and I think he’ll get that.
“If Leicester are going to sell him, there’d be a lot of takers.
“Tom has been brilliant and we’ve all loved him, everybody’s really appreciated what he’s done, but I think he has his heart set on Premier League football and why wouldn’t he?”
Ipswich fans – is this disappointing? Can Lawrence cut it in the PL? Let us know below…
