Cook: Burns Has Been a Target For a While
Thursday, 3rd Jun 2021 20:26

Blues boss Paul Cook says his first Town signing Wes Burns is a player he has been targeting for a while and believes fans will start to see more new recruits coming into the club from now on.

TWTD understands that the Blues out-gunned Championship Coventry City to land former Wales U21 international Burns from Fleetwood, the right-sided forward or full-back signing three-year deal earlier today after the clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

“Wes has been a target of mine for a while and we are delighted to have got him here,” Cook told the club website.

“He’s a great lad, a great character and a good player. He can play in a couple of different positions and he poses an attacking threat, as our supporters saw when he scored at our place at the end of last season.
  
“He’s at a great age [26] for a player and has gained a wealth of experience playing at different clubs. He can break the lines, is a good crosser of the ball and has an eye for goal. He brings to the squad the calibre of player required here.

“Supporters were probably getting a bit anxious that we hadn’t signed anyone but the reality is that the recruitment of players is a process now.

“It’s great that [CEO] Mark [Ashton] is now in place at the club and working behind his desk day in, day out and I think it will be to the fore that we will start to see players coming into Ipswich Town now.”

Wow, it’s been a long time since we out-gunned a team in a lower division never mind one above us so well done.
Have to say I have never heard or seen him play but from what other people are saying it looks a good first signing so again well done Town.
I have this strange feeling which I’ve not had for years going into a season- I think it’s called optimism. COYB

A sign that potential signings are seeing something exciting at PR?

Optimism!

That's another thing we've been starved of for far too long during the reign of Marcus Evans.

However, it seems we can now put the past behind us and look towards a brighter future, a future where our team is built on solid foundations, with players who can actually play a bit, create things going forward and win matches playing attractive, attacking football.

Dare we dream?

I will be!

A good start in the transfer market... welcome Wes.

Now, lets see the other targets ushered through the gates and watch Paul Cook, Mark Ashton and the owners build a side we can be proud of.

Looks like we will all have to buy a match day programme so we can see all these new faces who are in the squad. Welcome Wes hope you are the first of a few new faces. COYB’s.

Excellent goal against us in the final game, if there's more of that to come from him then see this as a very good signing. Good start Mr Cook !!

OMG he's got real pace which is something we have been missing for a long long time. Welcome to Ipswich Wes and we look forward to seeing you skin our opponents like you did against us.

Does this mean that the Harry Kane deal is off?
