Homegrown midfielder Luke Hyam has revealed that he’s leaving Ipswich Town.

The combative academy product, 26, took to Instagram to share the news.

He wrote: “My time at Ipswich Town has come to an end. After 15 years, I want to say a massive thanks to all the players and staff, past and present who have been part of my journey.

“I’ve been very fortunate and privileged to play for the team I supported as a child and to achieve all my goals I set out over the years.

“I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my career. I wish all the boys the very best for the following season.”

Hyam, a former pupil at Northgate High School in Ipswich, was out of contract in the summer and it seems the Blues have decided not to take up their option of keeping him on for another year.

While popular with many fans due to his all-action, industrious style of play, he has struggled with injuries in recent seasons and was sent on loan to Rotherham back in the 2015/16 campaign.

All told, he made 118 starts and 28 substitute appearances for his beloved Blues, scoring three goals.
