Town Confirm Edwards Staying to 2014
Thursday, 31st Jan 2013 17:58

Town have confirmed that skipper Carlos Edwards has activated a clause in his contract entitling him to an extra year at Portman Road, as TWTD revealed on Sunday. The Trinidadian will now remain with the Blues until the summer of 2014.

By making his 30th start of the season at Bristol City on Saturday, Edwards triggered the option for a second year which was included in the contract he signed in April.

Meanwhile, Town have said striker Aaron Mclean will stay on loan at Portman Road for the remainder of the season as planned.

On Saturday, Hull City boss Steve Bruce said he was considering recalling the 29-year-old from his spell at Portman Road.

Elsewhere, Bury have signed right-back Carl Regan, suggesting they're unlikely to want Blues defender Jack Ainsley, who has been on trial with the Shakers.

Agree with some on here - it is a clause in his contract and kicks on - He does need to step it up as we could do with another creative / wide man come in and really put him under pressure
I would take captaincy off him though and give to Chambers
Maybe that weight off his back may allow him to pass one o two players without cutting inside and checking back

To sum up his ITFC career tersely you'd simply have to say he has been a good servant to the club, no more, no less.

1.5 million in cold blood did we really need to play him against bristol city, that could have gone to say , someone like dj

One player that actually loves the club and wants to stay, put up with years of Cr@p playing at right back without complaining. God there's some numpties in this town.

Not to disrespect! Carlos but we are not a charity , im afraid football is big business nowadays and this is not a good thing for itfc, not to say we haven't squanderd club funds over the last few years this not a knock at carlos efforts & service to the club but doe's need to stop for this club to move forward

Don't worry he'll leave next January by mutual consent having had the remainder of his contract paid up!

Popeye is right, it will all end up in tears. It always does at Ipswich Town.
