Ipswich Town striker Gassan Ahadme agrees season-long loan switch to Cambridge United





Ipswich Town forward Gassan Ahadme has joined Sky Bet League One side Cambridge United on a season-long loan deal.

The Spaniard joined the Tractor Boys last August from Burton Albion but he has struggled for regular game time and spent the second half of the previous term back on loan with his former club.

And he will now make the journey down the A14 to link up with the U’s – a side he scored twice against during the 2022/23 campaign in Burton’s colours.

Upon agreeing the move, the 22-year-old said: “I am really excited to be here. The club has shown confidence in me and I am here to work as hard as I can to pay them back.

“The conversation (with Mark Bonner, head coach) was vital. He expressed to me his ideas and how he sees me fitting into this team and that is why I am here. I am ready to start working and I am really looking forward to it.”

Boss Mark Bonner added: “Gassan is a player we have been chasing for some time. I am delighted he is joining us and excited by his potential and impact he can have on the team.

“He is a focused and driven character whose work ethic and athleticism will provide us with an attacking dimension that will benefit the team. He is a strong runner, links the game well with his back to goal and has the ability to score a variety of goals.

“As a high crossing and forward running team, he will fit into the style of our game really well and joins us at a time where he is determined to put his game together and find the excellent level that got him his move to Ipswich Town.

“We are grateful to Ipswich Town for making the move happen. I particularly want to thank Keiran McKenna (Ipswich manager) and Martyn Pert (Ipswich assistant) for their support, and having been in discussion with the club for a number of months, I believe this move can benefit all parties.”
