Ipswich Town forward Sone Aluko set to stay at Portman Road as one-year contract extension is triggered
Sone Aluko is set to stay at Ipswich Town after a clause in his contract was automatically triggered.
The 33-year-old former Reading forward joined the Blues last summer, signing a one-year contract with the option to extend that by a further year if certain clauses in the contract were met.
According to TWTD, one of the clauses was making a set number of league appearances, which he has now met, triggering the one-year extension as a result.
Aluko has made 36 appearances so far this season, scoring three goals in all competitions. The last of those came in 4-0 away win against Portsmouth.
Speaking ahead of the trip to Crewe, Kieran McKenna offered an insight into why Aluko is considered an important player off the pitch.
"He's got a really good football brain, likes to communicate in team meetings," said the Town boss.
"He speaks really well, sees the game well, sees exactly what we're doing here and I think he enjoys the style of play and enjoys the journey that we are on.
"He always a good one to bounce off for an opinion as well, so again a really good senior player and somebody with good experiences to share. He's very well liked, very well-respected."
