Town Confirm Aluko Option Triggered
Wednesday, 18th May 2022 13:25

Town have confirmed that the option for a further year in forward Sone Aluko’s contract has been triggered, as revealed by TWTD in April.

The 33-year-old joined the Blues last summer on a free transfer after leaving Reading and signed a one-year contract which included an option for a further season if he made a set number of league appearances, which he did.

“I’m really excited about the upcoming campaign at Portman Road,” Aluko told the club site.

“Although we didn’t achieve what we wanted to last season, I have full confidence in the squad, coaching staff and the club as a whole. We will all give 100 per cent then next season.

“It’s a privilege to be able to wear the Town shirt and I’m happy I get to enjoy that for at least another season. I can’t wait to get back out there at Portman Road in front of our supporters.”

Former Nigeria international Aluko enjoyed an impressive first season with the Blues, making 22 starts (18 in the league) and 14 sub appearances, scoring three times.

had a bit of a stop start season, but at his best he is a class act and well worth the extra year

Skills, vision, talent and temperament have all been very evident on the pitch; and KM tells us he’s a massively good influence throughout the Club .
Whilst there may be questions on his physical ability and stamina over 90 minutes , his on field contributions are telling and he’s a delight to behold .
Let’s all hope he can remain really fit through next season and bring decisive contributions to open up the opposition ; he must be a very useful and articulate thinker too .

Always entertaining to watch but unfortunately not much end product.

A great player. The likes of hiim and Morsy have not been seen at this club for a very ery long time.

Will be great to have him mentor the youngsters and provide experience and class when required

Shoo in for captain should the the worst case be that Morsy moves on (which, for the avoidance of doubt, I sincerely hope is not the case).

Great news on Woolfie too.

Experienced player. Great to have him around the place.

A very important member of the squad . I doubt he’ll play many full matches but he can be game changing in the right games with his skills . So pleased he’s staying on 👍

Yes 1RWR seen him play home and away. Not one assist in a season is very poor for a midfield player and like i said he's got some good ball skills but lacks a killer final ball. Dosent bother me how many people mark me down they probably have never played the game at any level. I don't disagree with him getting another year on his contract always useful to have as an impact player.

ImAbelever How could you possibly have Aluko as captain when he isn't a regular starter in the team.

Fair to say if McKenna did not want him here next season, then he would not have played the games required to trigger the contract extension. We are better than
