Ipswich Town defender George Edmundson has admitted to TWTD that he joined the club this summer because of their ambition to eventually reach the Premier League.
The 24-year-old centre back arrived at Portman Road for a sizeable fee from Rangers and has formed what is a new look Ipswich Town side which is looking to get promoted back to the Sky Bet Championship.
Things haven’t got off to the best of starts for the defender and his teammates however and they currently sit well adrift in the early running for a top six place in League One after a pretty poor beginning to their campaign.
However the former Derby County man has been quick to stress exactly why he chose to join Paul Cook’s Ipswich revolution this summer, as he stated the following recently:
“Like the club, I am also ambitious and the aim is to get promoted to the Championship as soon as we can. But that won’t be a case of ambition achieved.
“Whatever league you are in you should want to go higher and that would obviously mean the Premier League. That’s where we want to be.”
Edmundson has played a part in four games for the club so far this season and has one goal to his name already.
