Following a blistering start to life at Portman Road, the flying wing-back went under the knife twice to deal with a troublesome groin issue, meaning he hasn’t played for Ipswich since hobbling out of the victory at Southend on October 26.

But the 24-year-old is now fully recovered and has been working with his team-mates during the early days of pre-season training at Playford Road, with the defender excited to return to action.

“My groin feels good,” Vincent-Young said.

“As tragic as lockdown and the virus has been, it has given me and the other injured players a chance to get back up to speed.

Vincent-Young played just nine games of a disappointing 2019/20 season for the Blues, in which they finished 11th, but the former Tottenham and Colchester man is now targeting a place in the Championship.

“I think the aims have to be the same as what we had last season,” he said.
