Ipswich Town have agreed contract extensions with Andre Dozzell and Harry Wright, with the pair tied down at Portman Road for an additional 12 months apiece.
An announcement has come on Ipswich’s official media channels this afternoon, with Town taking up their option to extend the contract of Dozzell and Wright by a further year.
The 21-year-old pair have had contrasting fortunes in their early years with Ipswich, with Dozzell slowly edging his way towards 50 appearances, but goalkeeper Wright still awaiting his first-team debut; he has been involved on the bench on numerous occasions, however.
For Dozzell, though, he’s made 15 appearances across all competitions so far this season, scoring one goal in Town’s 1-1 draw with Lincoln City in the FA Cup back in November.
In terms of League One, Dozzell has 10 appearances under his belt this season for Paul Lambert’s side.
Ipswich sit 10th in the League One table after 36 games, with Lambert and his men having work to do if they are to work their way into the play-off picture when the season can resume.
QUIZ: Can you name these 14 rarely-seen Ipswich Town players?
This is a positive move from Ipswich, who are protecting their assets heading into the summer, but more importantly, if the season can resume.
Dozzell is a player with bags of talent, who should have a decent career, whilst Wright is a very talented goalkeeper biding his time and awaiting a chance in the first-team.
The pair will be looking to use this show of faith from Ipswich to earn more opportunities.
