Defender commits until 2025

Elkan Baggott has penned a new three-year deal at Town.

The central defender, who signed his first professional contract at Portman Road in January last year, has committed his future to the Blues until the summer of 2025.

The Club has the option to extend the deal by a further 12 months.

Elkan, 19, made his league debut for the Blues away to Rotherham in April, when he became the first Indonesian to play in the English Football League.

He also featured on the final day of the campaign, when he played the full 90 minutes and kept a clean sheet in a 4-0 win over Charlton Athletic at home.

Elkan also played his part for Town U23s last term, with John McGreal’s side winning the Professional Development League South title.

This summer he has been on international duty with Indonesia. The Town Academy graduate has added two caps to his name, taking his tally up to 10 in total, and scored in a 7-0 victory over Nepal that saw his country qualify for the Asian Cup for the first time since 2007.

On signing a new deal at Town, Elkan said: “I’m buzzing to have signed a new contract.

“It’s been a great few days for me and I am delighted to have committed my future to the Club. I want to thank the gaffer as he has really helped me improve as a player since coming in. I would also like to thank the people around me, and close to me, who always give me support.

“My aim for next season is to play as much football as possible, whether that’s here or if the right loan opportunity comes up.”
