Baggott Commits Future To Tractor Boys

Baggott Commits Future To Tractor Boys

Ipswich Town graduate Elkan Baggot has put pen to paper on a new and improved contract that will keep him at Portman Road until the summer of 2025.

The commanding central defender signed his first professional contract in January last year, after impressing for the club’s youth side.

Elkan, 19, made his league debut for the Blues away to Rotherham in April, when he became the first Indonesian to play in the English Football League. He also featured on the final day of the campaign, when he played the full 90 minutes and kept a clean sheet in a 4-0 win over Charlton Athletic at home.

Elkan also played his part for Town U23s last term, with John McGreal’s side winning the Professional Development League South title.

This summer he has been on international duty with Indonesia. The Town Academy graduate has added two caps to his name, taking his tally up to 10 in total, and scored in a 7-0 victory over Nepal that saw his country qualify for the Asian Cup for the first time since 2007.

On signing a new deal at Town, Elkan told the club website: “I’m buzzing to have signed a new contract.

It’s been a great few days for me and I am delighted to have committed my future to the Club. I want to thank the gaffer as he has really helped me improve as a player since coming in. I would also like to thank the people around me, and close to me, who always give me support.

My aim for next season is to play as much football as possible, whether that’s here or if the right loan opportunity comes up.”
