Donacien Signs New Deal
Thursday, 18th Nov 2021 19:06

Right-back Janoi Donacien has signed a new contract with the Blues which runs to the summer of 2023 with the club having an option for a further season.

The 28-year-old would have been out of contract at the end of 2021/22, Town having taken up the one-year option on his previous deal in May.

“I'm really happy to have it done,” the St Lucia-born full-back told iFollow Ipswich.

“We've been speaking about it for a couple of weeks. I've been enjoying my football here and I want that to continue.

“I'm happy to be playing regularly and the group here is really close. We're getting stronger and I want to continue to be a part of that.

“I've received some nice messages from supporters and been getting some praise for my work. There is a good vibe and this is a really good place to be.”

Donacien joined the Blues from Accrington Stanley in the summer of 2018 but has had an up and down spell with the club, spending spells on loan back at the Wham Stadium and with Fleetwood before establishing himself as the first-choice right-back under Paul Cook’s management this season.

Arguably one of our best players this season, glad to see him finally finding his feet here after a troubling start. One of the survivors of the Hurst disaster!

Great decision. But he's not 23 as per the article, he's 28.

Gone back in time? He's gotta be closer to 27 I'd imagine than 23.
Great to see him get the deal he deserves.
Brought in by Hurst to find himself with that sham of a manager Lambert hampering his career.

Not sure where 23 came from, 28 obviously.

As an aside, his family are also great. They gave me and my 5yr old daughter complimentary tickets for Derby away 3yrs ago (or thereabouts). They stood behind us in the ice cream queue and simply asked us if we would like the tickets. How nice is that!!!

A poor signing by Hurst………O how he has proved me wrong

Has grown in to a very versatile player and for me should be our regular right back. Has shown his character by never doubting his ability.
KVY has a lot of work to do to replace him.

Well done Janoi

Thoroughly deserved. We've always said that he's never let us down, and this season he is massively improved and extremely consistent. Always a good defender, he's added more to his game in the attacking third. Definitely benefitting from having better players around him. Good news.

Paul Lambert had some kind of downer on him. He’s proved himself to be a decent right back this season. Well done for Cook and well done Janoi. More evidence that Lambert was clueless

Thoroughly well deserved along with Bonne and Burns my players of the season so far. As Cooks and Ashtons philosophy if you work hard and have the heart to want to play for the club you’ll be in the team and along with the football we’re playing at times he’s now flourishing in the side whereas stifled under Hurst and Lambert.

Really well deserved.

I can remember him playing Albert Adomah off the Park when we played Aston Villa.Lambert treated him appalingly when he was always a right and not a centre half.

Bided his time and is now proving consistently his worth to the Team
