Cheick Kourouma leaves Ipswich Town by mutual consent

PUBLISHED: 17:37 21 December 2012

IPSWICH TOWN have parted company with Cheick Kourouma by mutual consent.

The French midfielder signed a contract in September to keep him at Portman Road until the end of the campaign after impressing while on trial at the club at the end of last season and during the summer.

He has appeared for Town in friendlies and Under-21 games but failed to break into the first-team squad and it’s been agreed by all parties that it’s best if he moves on.

“We wish Cheick every success for the future,” said Town chief executive Simon Clegg.

It’s been a relief somewhat to not have to worry about the thought of an Ipswich game over the weekend and for someone that really dislikes a blank weekend because on an international break, it’s an indication of how bad things are right now.

It’s been a dismal season for Ipswich Town fans and it could yet get worse.

Ipswich may have broken out of their run of straight draws – but a 3-1 defeat isn’t really much to shout about.

Ipswich Town defender Tommy Smith has told a newspaper in New Zealand that he is 100% committed to playing for the national team, ahead of the All Whites’ World Cup qualifiers against Fiji.

With eight games to go, Ipswich Town are still not safe from relegation to League One, following a tough season in the Championship, and lost 3-1 at Cardiff City at the weekend.

Mick McCarthy says his managerial record is the reason for his longevity at Portman Road, not owner Marcus Evans’ perceived patience with his managers.

Ipswich Town will not be backtracking on their decision to raise the price of season tickets, despite a huge outcry from supporters.

Loan duo Dominic Samuel and Jonny Williams made timely injury comebacks last night as a strong Ipswich Town Under-23 side drew 1-1 with Crewe at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town have suffered a double injury blow with the news that forward duo David McGoldrick and Tom Lawrence have had to withdraw from the Republic of Ireland and Wales squads respectively.
