Wes Burns has committed his future to Ipswich Town by signing a one-year contract extension.

The 27-year-old joined Town from Fleetwood last summer on a three-year deal until 2024, but after an impressive first season in Suffolk, he has signed an extension until 2025.

Burns picked up the Player of the Year award, Players' Player of the Year and Corporate Sponsors Player of the Year after netting 13 goals in all competitions this season.

"I'm delighted to have committed my future to the club," he told the club website.

"I believe the club is only going one way, and I want to be a part of that.

"Once the season had finished it was very much about getting a new contract sorted, which I am really pleased is now done.

"A lot of people have played a part in my development this season and I am loving my football here. I love being a part of this dressing room and I am already excited about next season because I want to achieve things with the club."

Ipswich boss Kieran McKenna praised Burns' desire and drive since he arrived at the club in December.

"We're thrilled that Wes has signed a new deal with the club," he added.

"He's had a really strong season and has proved to be a constant weapon for us. Since arriving at the club he has shown fantastic attitude and application, and I know he is eager to achieve things next year.

"It's vital that we secure the services of our strong players ahead of what will be a competitive division in League One next season."
