Many Ipswich Town fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that Oli Hawkins has joined Mansfield Town for an undisclosed fee.
The towering striker, who is also capable of playing at centre back, departs Portman Road after only making eight league starts last term and is the latest departure this summer as Paul Cook overhauls the squad.
Hawkins originally joined the Tractor Boys back in the summer of last year from Portsmouth on a free transfer but in the end, the target man found life difficult in East Anglia and he will now depart for pastures new with the Stags.
Meanwhile Town have also been busy bringing players in, with Wes Burns and Lee Evans signing from Fleetwood Town and Wigan Athletic respectively.
Naturally the news of Hawkins departing the club didn’t take long to reach the fanbase, with many taking to social media to air their views on the matter.

Another one to League 2. Starting to think I got it all wrong when I thought the team were good enough for promotion last season.

A man who openly said he doesn’t like pressure and prefers to play centre back. This was an awful signing before it even happened.
