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.
“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.”

The Best PM in My Life by essexccc
Being born in 1957, I think I have lived through the leadership of 12 Prime Ministers. I don't know which of them I regard as the best, although I regard the current one, the amoral, lying and self-seeking one, as without doubt, the worst.
