Has Jonny Williams’ love affair with Ipswich Town come to an end?
Mick McCarthy thinks Jonny Williams’ love affair with Ipswich Town has come to an end.
The Welsh international midfielder was a big hit during his initial loan spell from Crystal Palace, but his subsequent temporary switches have been blighted by injury and he’s started just one Championship game this season.
“I wonder whether he’d want to come here again?” said McCarthy. “He’s had nothing but bad luck with injuries. He was so fabulous the first time he came here. He was wonderfully gifted and lit the place up with his ability, pace and trickery and always with a smile on his face. It’s not happened since.
“We’ve had him on two other occasions and he’s just been injured, which is sad because everyone loved him. It’s even sadder for him that his career has stalled. He’s got a year left to run at Crystal Palace and it’s a big year for Jonny. He needs to go and play somewhere regularly.”
