Wednesday, 1st Jul 2020 11:07
Town centre-half Luke Woolfenden has signed a new contract which runs to 2024 with the club having an option for a further year.
The 21-year-old was one of the Blues’ top performers during 2019/20 with clubs including Leeds, Crystal Palace, Sheffield United and QPR all having watched him.
Town are understood to have received interest in the former East Bergholt High School pupil in January with further approaches for Woolfenden expected ahead of 2020/21.
Ipswich-born academy product Woolfenden was previously contracted until the summer of 2022.

Good tactic to get more money for him this summer 🙄

I challenge anyone to find anything bad about this.

That's fantastic news and well done to Mr Evans to getting the checkbook out.

Good for Luke; good for the club!

Its is great news. However, a contract means nothing at the end of the day. Other than we could demand more money for him should anyone come in for him. But should some1 come in with a bid of say £8-10m, wed have no option but to accept it. Have to just hope that doesnt happen.

Lovely to see home grown and nurtured talent ,with increasing skills and physique remaining part of our Club !
Great news all round !

Its Great for the young man and great for the club . Pretty sure reading the posts above who would have been moaning that we didn't do this if we do lose him in the summer !

Fantastic news, he has the potential to be a top class defender. He is already the the best defender we have at the club IMO. Playing for us for the next few years, playing competitive games and getting game time, is probably the best thing he can do for his development. I just hope this isn't a way to get a few quid for for him in the coming months.

That's fantastic news !! I'm actually shocked if Im being honest but finally something positive out of PR ... maybe he just really liked the new kit

Even if it is purely to up any possible fee its still right for.the club to protect its assets and maximise the revenue... hopefully it means the Wolf will play in blue next sesson

The jaded view on this reading above is people sensing its a ploy to increase value, but in my opinion if that is the case and its to price out interest then good for ITFC for once because too many times we've had the pi$$ taken out of us .. thinking recently Bart and Waggy

Now make him captain, that would show the fans that we have a future. Mick Mills i recall was a similar age
|Wickets added 11:54 - Jul 1|
Would be interesting to know if there is a release clause and if so how much . As Wolf has not played much in the Championship another season at this league 1 level will do him no harm .
|Bluearmy_81 added 11:56 - Jul 1|
Very happy to hear this. We must keep hold of him and Downes to have any hope of going up
|Westy added 12:10 - Jul 1|
The best news for a long, long time.
|runningout added 12:23 - Jul 1|
👍 Now bring in more diamonds and move on the fake professionals
|Dockerblue added 12:57 - Jul 1|
Good stuff, can only get better as well, especially as he,ll be tidying up Chambers cock-ups next season!
|AbujaBlue added 12:58 - Jul 1|
Gilesy - it appears you issued your challenge two minutes too late!
This is great news.
|TimmyH added 13:01 - Jul 1|
Yes that's good news...expected him to leave, be very surprised if Downes stays as well.
