Bru Considering Offers From France and Elsewhere
Monday, 14th Aug 2017 10:36
Out-of-favour midfielder Kevin Bru says he has had several offers from clubs in France and elsewhere with his time at Town set to end this summer.
Mauritius international Bru, 28, is out of manager Mick McCarthy’s plans having been told he could move on if he was able to find another club at the end of last season.
The former Levski Sofia man, who joined Town after a successful trial in the summer of 2014, was subsequently not given a squad number for 2017/18.
Speaking to Mauritius-based 5plus Dimanche, Bru confirmed that he is in the process of looking for another club.
"I want to leave Ipswich Town to go somewhere else,” he said. “I talked with coach McCarthy and agreed that I could leave if I get an offer from another club.”
Bru featured for the Blues during pre-season and says he wants to be up to speed if and when he signs for another club.
"I do not try to regain the confidence of the coach after having talked with him,” he added. “I knew what to expect before resuming training with the club this summer.
“My objective is to train as much as possible to be physically ready if I am forced to change clubs during the transfer window.
“I have had offers from France and abroad. I am waiting to make the right choice. If nothing happens I have one year of my contract left at Ipswich.”
Paris-born Bru, who qualifies for Mauritius via his parents, made 59 starts and 35 sub appearances for the Blues, scoring four goals.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.

When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
