McGavin signs new deal

Town midfielder Brett McGavin has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

The midfielder previously had one year remaining on his contract, but has now put pen to paper on a deal that will see him stay at Portman Road until the summer of 2022.

The 20-year-old, who has made four Town appearances, made his debut for Blues against Colchester United in the EFL Trophy in November 2019.

“You see the team now, there are plenty of young players,” McGavin told iFollow Ipswich.

“A few of us have had opportunities in the past and I think that’ll continue to happen. That is a factor of me staying. I see an opportunity and a pathway here.

“There are people like Skusey [Cole Skuse] who I’ve learnt a lot from. It’s all competition, it’s anyone’s shirt to grab. I’ll be working my hardest to get the shirt.

“Obviously I want to stay here but my main ambition is to get into a team, whether that’s here or on loan. That’s my goal, [playing] first-team football.”

McGavin’s league debut came at home to Fleetwood just before the pandemic, the midfielder was withdrawn at the break but believes the experience from being in the first-team has and will make him a better player.

“It was tough but it was great to be involved with the team and it was a learning curve. You take bits from each game forwards into training and the next game.

“It’s a learning experience, you take the positive and you take the negatives and work with them.”

Meanwhile, Town have singed goalkeeper Albert White on a one-year deal with the option of an additional year.

The 18-year-old has been on trial with the club since leaving AFC Wimbledon. White will join Town’s Academy and look to provide competition for Adam Przybek following Harry Wright’s loan move to GAIS.
