Homegrown Luke rewarded for progress with contract until 2024
Luke Woolfenden has signed a new four-year contract at Town.
The 21-year-old defender, who has been the recent subject of interest from Premier League and Championship clubs, has penned a deal until the summer of 2024 with a year option on top.
He was contracted until 2022 but the Club have moved to reward his progress over the last season, which has seen him become a regular in the first-team.
Ipswich-born and a product of the Club’s Academy, Luke made his first-team debut in the Carabao Cup win at Luton in August 2017. He made his first League appearance at the end of that campaign, playing the 90 minutes as Blues won 4-0 at Reading in the Championship.
He spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Swindon, scoring twice in 36 appearances for the League Two club before kicking off the 2019/20 campaign in the heart of Town’s defence.
Luke would have been one of the leading candidates for the Club’s Player of the Year before Blues’ season was curtailed early after the impact of Covid-19. He has 41 appearances to his name, scoring his first goal for Town in the 1-0 win over Lincoln in January.
The Club website will be speaking to Luke later today.
