Options Taken on McGavin and Dobra Deals
Tuesday, 5th May 2020 14:22

Town have taken up the option to keep midfield pair Brett McGavin and Armando Dobra for a further season, in addition to Andre Dozzell and Harry Wright.

Academy product McGavin, 20, made his senior debut this season and has now made four first-team starts. We understand the decision to exercise the option was taken some weeks ago and talks regarding a longer-term deal are ongoing.

As previously reported, Albanian U21 call-up Dobra, 19, has all but agreed a new three-year deal with an option for a further season which will be signed when the Londoner returns to Portman Road.

However, in the meantime the club have taken the option on his existing deal which was due to end this summer.

High hopes that Dobra and McGavin can become first team regulars.

Both good enough to push for a first team place. Must keep Wolfie and Downes and a fit Lankaster, Bishop, Dozzell and the other promisong youngsters we should have the base a of a good young side which will get so many Town fans back onside.

Pleased with this, excited by Dobra. Think in a few years Dobra could be class player. McGavin I haven't personally seen but have heard good reports about him being very calm and composed on the ball, with a good range of passing. Look forward to football returning once it's safe to do so, club.

We certainly need to take up options on our promising youngsters especially with the rumoured div1&2 salary caps being discussed, all round it's squeaky bum time for out of contract senior pros(and their families)

Good move, now it,s time to move on our under-performing older players, they've had plenty of chances to show they are good enough and have failed to deliver. Put the young ones in and let,s see, sure they,ll make mistakes but fans will forgive that if they are giving their all. Put a couple of old heads in to steer them in the right direction but please not Chambers & Skuse, someone in the Tony Mowbray mould would do nicely

Div 1 clubs will be shuddering in their boots . I can remember when we produced youngsters that could play in the top flight. We now find it hard to find players that are good enough to play in this crap league sad times.
