“It wouldn’t surprise me” – Wes Burns makes James Norwood claim after Ipswich Town exit

James Norwood had a good season for Ipswich Town as he scored six goals and provided three assists. 

However, at 31-years-old, the boss Kieran McKenna decided to let the forward go this summer following the expiration of his contract.

There has previously been reported interest in the player from elsewhere in League One as well as Preston North End however, as it stands, Norwood is yet to sign for a new side.

That being said, Ipswich winger Wes Burns has backed his former teammate to get a League One move this summer as he told the East Anglian Daily Times: “There’s every chance [Ipswich will come up against him next season].

“He gets goals, so it wouldn’t surprise me if somebody in this league snapped him up because he is a very good player. He brings goals to your team, and I just wish he doesn’t score against us next year.

“He’s already said to me that him and Morsy might have a little bit [of a scrap], but that’s the two players that they are.”

The Tractorboys have already signed a new striker for the season in Freddie Ladapo but Norwood will be hoping he can find a club where he can make an impact next season.

Can you remember how much Ipswich Town paid for these 22 summer signings?

The Verdict: 

Norwood had a good season with Ipswich this year but it’s understandable why he was let go this summer especially as McKenna looks towards the new season with the hope of gaining promotion and adding some youth to the side.

That being said, the forward is a good player at this level and as his former teammate pointed out, could definitely add to a team in this league and help their efforts.

There have been a number of teams interested previously and given he is available on a free transfer, this seems as though it could be a solid signing for teams in this league.

Therefore, it will be no surprise if he signs for a different League One outfit by the time the new season arrives.
