Whight Signs Ipswich Town Deal

Ipswich Town youngster Joe Whight has signed a two-year professional contract at the club.

The 17-year-old left-back who has just started the second year of his Apprenticeship has thought to have come to the attention of both Arsenal and Newcastle United.

He is yet to make a first-team appearance but did feature on the bench three times at the back end of last season.

“Once or twice I thought I might have got on and I didn’t want the season to end,” he told the club website.

“Now it’s down to me to me to impress the manager as much as I can and push for a place in the first team.”

Whight will now have to compete with new signing Aaron Cresswell and veteran Mark Kennedy for the left-back berth.

Meanwhile two former Apprentices are set to re-launch their careers in Scotland after being released by Ipswich last month. Josh Meekings has signed a two-year deal at Inverness Caledonian Thistle whilst Rory McKeown is understood to be on trial at Kilmarnock.
