6 Ipswich players to look out for in the Premier League

Leif Davis

For the first time since 2002, Ipswich Town will play Premier League football next season.

It’s a fascinating story which even the most optimistic of Ipswich fans would not have believed just a few years ago. Current boss Kieran McKenna joined in December 2021 with the Tractor Boys sitting 12th in League One, and after back-to-back promotions, they’re now back at England’s biggest table.

It’s time to get to know the Premier League’s newest outfit, so here are six players to keep an eye out for.

Leif Davis managed 21 assists in 43 games from left-back. Eat your heart out, Andy Robertson.

The 24-year-old is a dead-ball specialist with a penchant for a wicked cross that strikers simply love to throw themselves at. It’s not a random occurance either, as Davis bagged 14 assists in League One the year prior. This is what he does.

Welsh winger Nathan Broadhead finished level with Chaplin at the top of Ipswich’s scoring chart this season, bagging 13 goals in 38 games.

The 26-year-old came through the Everton academy and actually managed two appearances for the Toffees – one in the Europa League and the other in the Premier League – but has endured a slow start to life at the senior level. Indeed, he has played just 135 games of club football thus far in his career, with a combination of injuries and getting stuck in Everton’s academy leaving him relatively inexperienced compared to other players of the same age. For comparison, Chaplin is 14 months older but has played 386 games of senior football.
