Josh Carson named in Northern Ireland squad

HIS club future might remain uncertain.

But Town youngster Josh Carson has today got a reason to celebrate after being named in Michael O’Neill’s first full Northern Ireland squad.

An Ipswich spokesman has confirmed the 18-year-old has been called up for Ireland’s friendly against Norway on February 29.

Carson is out of contract at the end of the season and while negotiations have begun with Ipswich over a new deal, an agreement has not yet been reached – leaving fans fearing he might leave for nothing.

Carson has not featured in the 16-man squad since he started against Blackpool four-and-half-weeks ago.
