Ipswich Town keen on reunion with 24-year-old midfielder

Published

on

Ipswich Town are interested in re-signing attacking midfielder Bersant Celina, a report from TWTD has claimed.

Celina previously spent the 2017/18 season on loan with Ipswich from Manchester City, when he scored eight goals in 38 appearances in all competitions for the Tractor Boys.

The midfielder then spent the subsequent two years with Swansea, before moving to France to join Dijon last summer.

However, the 24-year-old was unable to find the net in 33 outings for the club, as they suffered relegation from the French top-flight.

Now it seems as though a return to England could be on the cards for Celina, with this latest update claiming that Ipswich are keen to sign the Kosovo international again.

It is thought that Ipswich are working to try and bring Celina back to Portman Road for next season, although other clubs are said to be interested in the 24-year-old.

As things stand, there are still three years remaining on Celina’s contract with Dijon, meaning the French side are in a strong position to negotiate any offers that come in for him.

The Verdict

I do think that this could be a very good signing for Ipswich if they can pull it off.

Things haven’t gone to plan for Celina at Dijon over the past year, but he has previously shown that he can make an impact on these shores at Championship level.

As a result, you do feel as though he may be able to flourish in League One at Portman Road, where the fact that he is already familiar with the environment could help him to settle in well.

The fact that Celina seemingly impressed on loan with Ipswich in the past also means that this could be a popular deal among the club’s fanbase, as Paul Cook continues to overhaul just about every area of his squad, meaning this is a deal that could be well worth pursuing for the Tractor Boys.
