"We’re really happy with what we have in the door at the moment"

Kieran McKenna says he is really pleased with the transfer business completed by the Club so far this summer.

Town have made four signings to date, with the permanent captures of Freddie Ladapo, Dom Ball and Greg Leigh being added to by Tyreece John-Jules joining on a season-long loan deal yesterday.

Kayden Jackson, who was out of contract, Wes Burns and Luke Woolfenden have all signed new deals, while the Blues have also secured the long-term futures of youngsters Elkan Baggott and Cameron Humphreys.

"The Club has worked very hard," Town's manager told iFollow Ipswich. "It's been a busy summer for everyone but I'm really pleased.

"Tying some big first-team players up to new deals early in the window was really important. Securing the future of some of our young players who we think highly of and who we think have a big part to play in the years to come was a positive for them and for us.

"Beyond that, we’ve tried to add some key ingredients to the squad and we’ve managed to do that nice and early, which gives us a strong squad right at the start of pre-season.

"The new boys are fitting in and functioning really well. We’re really happy with what we have in the door at the moment. 

"Everyone has come back with a hunger in their eyes as they know it’s a big season for the group. The new players coming in will be a big part of that as well."
