COLE SIGNS NEW DEAL

8 February 2018

Midfielder pens deal until the summer of 2020

Cole Skuse has signed a new deal that will keep him at Portman Road until the summer of 2020.

The midfielder would have been out of contract at the end of the season, although the Club had an option of extending his stay by another year but Blues and the former Bristol City player have agreed a new deal, which also includes a further 12 month option on top.

“I’m delighted to have got it done,” Cole told iFollow Ipswich.

“I’d be lying if I said I haven’t been thinking about it because I’ve got a family to look after. I’ve got kids at school and things like that.

“I’m not one to be badgering the hierarchy at the Club and the manager though. I have just got my head down and concentrated on my football and it’s that that reflects on a deal being done really.”

The contract keeps Cole at the Club until he’s 34 and he says he’d love the opportunity to stay at Portman Road beyond that.

“Things can change in football but if I could finish my career here and then go down a different path of working at the Club, maybe as a coach that would be great,” added the Bristol-born player who has made close on 200 appearances for Town.

“I have spoken to Bryan Klug and he said they’d love for me to do some work with the Academy.

“So if that is a route I go down, I’d love to do that here.”
