Ipswich Town confirm Alan Judge will not play again this season due to contract clause




Alan Judge has seemingly played his last game for Ipswich Town.

In a statement released last night, the club confirmed the midfielder would not be available for selection for the remainder of the season due to a clause in his contract that would trigger an extension if he makes one more appearance.

The Republic of Ireland international is one of a number of senior Ipswich players who are set to become free agents in the summer and this latest development suggests there is no intention to retain his services beyond that point.

Manager Paul Cook told the club's website: “It’s not ideal for us or Alan because I would have liked to have had him available for us over the rest of the season.

“I told him we are not in a position to trigger that extension to his contract and because of the situation, we won't be considering him for the remaining games.”

Judge has turned out on 91 occasions for the Tractor Boys, scoring eight goals.
