Mick McCarthy has revealed that central defenders Piotr Malarczyk and Josh Yorwerth will be allowed to leave Ipswich Town.

Malarczyk was signed from Polish side Korona Kielce in the summer and managed six appearances, before moving to Southend on loan, while Yorwerth is currently on loan at Crawley having played for the Blues three times in the League Cup.

Both are under contract for next season, but McCarthy says they will be allowed to move on.

“Josh Yorwerth and Peter Malarczyk will be available to other clubs and they won’t be staying,” McCarthy confirmed.

“He’s (Malarczyk) not as good as what we’ve got, it’s as simple as that.

“Josh Yorwerth’s done ok at Crawley. I spoke to Josh the other day. I’ve already spoken to Piotr, I told him before he went off to Southend. I spoke to Josh on Tuesday this week and said that he would be available.”

While Yorwerth and Malarczyk are free to move on, McCarthy has seen enough improvement in Joe Robinson to keep the under 21 captain at the club for another year.

“Robbo’s a bit behind those but he’ll be staying and he’ll be the captain of the U21s team,” McCarthy said.

“He’s a great example, he’s one of the youngest in his year and, I’ll be brutally honest, six months ago I’d be thinking I probably wouldn’t have kept him.

“But he made such a rapid improvement and he’s such a great kid and such a great character and an example to others, I think based on that he’s worth that chance.

“He’s a young one in his year and as we all know young scholars, young academics, young professional footballers, if they’re almost 10 or 11 months behind some of the others, their peers, they do take a bit of catching up.

“He’s worth it on that basis and he’ll in the under 21s, if not we’ll loan him out somewhere because he did well at Woking.

“That’s his future at the club and hopefully he improves enough to get in the team.”
