“I’ve come here to start and finish something"
Town can confirm that Macauley Bonne will see out his season-long loan and remain at the Club until the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
The striker, who is on loan with the Blues from QPR, has scored 12 goals in 24 League games this term.
Given his impressive first half of the season, Macauley’s future has been the subject of speculation, but, following discussions between the two clubs, he will close out the campaign at Portman Road, where he will aim to add to his impressive goal return.
“I’m happy to have secured the second half of the season at this place," he told iFollow Ipswich.
“There was a lot of speculation about what was going on with me coming into January. I won’t lie to you, it did affect me a bit, not just goals wise but off the pitch as well.
“It’s been hard work. It’s not been easy keeping me here. It’s a big thank you to everyone who has helped me out so far.
“I’ve come here to start and finish something. I’m not going to jump ship halfway through a season, that’s not in my nature. There’s only one aim now, and that is promotion. I couldn’t have seen myself playing football anywhere else this season bar Ipswich Town.
Town boss Kieran McKenna added:
"Macauley has been a vital player for the Club throughout the season. He is someone that has a lot to offer to the team on and off the pitch, so I am delighted that he will be staying with us for the rest of the campaign.
"We can continue to focus on the important games coming up, starting with Bolton tomorrow."
