Sears, Wilson, Huws and Nydam all join departing Blues

Freddie Sears, James Wilson, Emyr Huws and Tristan Nydam are moving on from Portman Road after coming to the end of their contracts.

Former West Ham striker Freddie has clocked up 217 appearances for Blues, scoring 34 goals in that time.

He joined Town from Colchester in January 2015 and his nine goals in the second half of that campaign helped Town reach the Championship Play-Offs.  

Wales international Emyr joined Blues from Cardiff in the summer of 2017 on a four year deal, having impressed in a loan spell.

Injuries hindered his first two years at Portman Road but he featured for the first-team under former boss Paul Lambert and went on to make 55 appearances for the Club, scoring five goals.

James leaves Town just one appearance short of a half century after arriving as a free agent in August 2019.

Injuries have restricted his availability this season but the 32-year-old defender scored in successive weeks in March, in the win at Accrington and the home draw with Lincoln and his performances were enough for him to win the vote as the Supporters’ Player of the Year.

Academy graduate Tristan is another whose progress has been hindered by injury. The 21-year-old sustained a broken ankle and ligament damage in July 2019 and only returned to the first-team in the goalless draw with MK Dons last month. He has made 22 appearances for the senior side.

The four join Cole Skuse, Luke Chambers, Alan Judge and Stephen Ward in leaving the Club and all at Ipswich Town wish them well.
