Jaime Peters becomes the latest Ipswich Town player to have their contract prematurely terminated

JAIME Peters has become the latest Ipswich Town player to come to a mutual agreement over a premature termination of their contract.

The Canada international became something of a fans’ favourite during the Roy Keane era due to his work-rate in a variety of roles.

However, he has slipped completely out of the picture under the management of Paul Jewell and made just one first team appearance last season – in the League Cup defeat to lower league Northampton – before joining League One side Bournemouth on a short-term loan.

As a result, the club sat down and came to a financial agreement over the final year of the 25-year-old’s contract – as they have also done with Shane O’Connor, Luciano Civelli, Ivar Ingimarsson, Tamas Priskin, Colin Healy and Jimmy Bullard over the last 12 months.

“Jaime is a terrific lad but it’s not really worked out for him here since I’ve been here,” said Jewell.

“We have a lot of options in the wide areas and he’s not had a look in at first-team level, so it’s best if he moves on because the lad needs to be playing football.

“We wish him every success and I’m sure he will get fixed up with another club.”

Peters – who was drawing interest from Manchester United and Chelsea before he joined Ipswich in 2005 – made 114 appearances for Town, scoring four goals.

“I’d like to wish Ipswich Town all the best for the future,” said Peters.

“I have some good memories from my time at the club and always enjoyed a good relationship with the supporters but it’s important at this stage of my career that I’m playing football so it’s best if I move on.”
