Luke Hyam wants to help Ipswich Town to the Premier League after signing new deal
Homegrown midfielder Luke Hyam wants to help Ipswich Town into the Premier League after signing a new two-year deal with the club.
The Blues had previously taken up their one-year option on the former Northgate pupil, but he today signed a new two-year deal which also includes another option for a further year.
The midfielder, who spent time on loan at Rotherham last season, is pleased to be staying with his home town club and now wants to help the Blues push towards the Premier League.
“This is where I’ve always wanted to be since I was at a young age,” he told Ipswich Player.
“I support the club and I want to stay here as long as I possibly can and obviously it would be nice to help Ipswich get promoted into the Premier League.
“When your contract is up at the end of the season it’s always a worrying time because you never know what will happen and you don’t want to be looking for another club on a free, but it’s nice to get it done and dusted so I can focus on my football.

“When he came in he said he would get rid of the deadwood and he brings in players with the right personality that will fit in with the team-spirit.
“The close-knit group of lads we have here is really good and it shows on the pitch. Obviously we haven’t performed as well as we would have liked recently, but hopefully we can push on next season and get to the play-offs or even get automatic promotion.”
