"I have a big summer ahead and I am already looking forward to next season"

Kayden Jackson has signed a new two-year contract at Town.

The frontman joined the Club on a three-year deal in the summer of 2018, with the Blues then exercising a 12-month option last summer.

Now, the 28-year-old's new deal will see him stay at Portman Road until the summer of 2024.

Kayden, who started his career in the North East Counties League before turning professional, scored five goals in 19 games for the Blues across 2021/22.

He netted in back-to-back games against Fleetwood and Lincoln in March, before suffering a hamstring injury against Portsmouth later that month which ended his season prematurely.

"I'm really pleased that it's done," Kayden told iFollow Ipswich.

"Because of the injury, the negotiations have been going on for a little while, but I am delighted to have it sorted now.

"We have had positive discussions ever since I got back into the team and I have loved playing under the manager. I play my best football when I am happy and it's been nice to get that feeling back.

"In terms of the injury, the rehab is going well. I have a big summer ahead and I am already looking forward to next season."

Town boss Kieran McKenna added: "Kayden’s attitude and personality have really impressed me since I arrived, and we are delighted he is staying with us.

"He’s an incredibly hard worker in training and, before the injury, that hard work was showing in his performances. His rehab is going well and we are all looking forward to seeing him back in action come next season."

The full interview with Kayden will be available to watch on iFollow Ipswich later today.
