Macauley Bonne has revealed that it was ‘a no-brainer’ to return to Ipswich Town once he heard of their interest.
The Queens Park Rangers striker had completed a loan move to the Tractorboys after a frustrating first season in West London in which the 25-year-old scored just three goals in 35 appearances for Mark Warburton’s side.
With Charlie Austin joining the club on a permanent deal it means that Bonne was facing an uphill challenge this term, and when his boyhood club came knocking, the forward said that he was delighted to join the club under its current regime.
Speaking to Ipswich Town’s official website, Bonne said: “It’s been 12 years since I left here when I was a kid and it’s great to be back.
“I’m a Town fan and as soon as I heard about the opportunity to come back here and play for the first-team, the team that I essentially love, it was a no-brainer. I can’t wait to get going now.
“Paul Cook is a character. He’s been dying to get it over the line. He seems like a guy I really want to work with and do well under, and it seems like he wants the same for me so that’s all I can ask for.”
This move certainly seems like a match made in heaven.
Macauley Bonne is simply too good to be a backup player with Queens Park Rangers and that’s why he deserves a move where he can be a central figure.
With Ipswich Town he’s likely to get that as the Tractorboys looks to secure promotion from League One under Paul Cook.
Bonne has an excellent scoring record and if he can tap into that at Portman Road then it could be a very good season for him and the club.
