Ipswich Town CEO Mark Ashton has made it clear to potential candidates that he expects them to join the club as much as he does.
The Tractor Boys have embarked on a major overhaul of their team since Ashton became their new CEO on June 1.
Ipswich has seen a number of players leave Portman Road in recent weeks, and they have been active in the transfer market, securing Wes Burns of Fleetwood Town and Lee Evans of Wigan Athletic.
Ashton has revealed he was overwhelmed by the history and legacy of Ipswich upon joining and demanded full commitment from the new players expected to arrive this summer.
The new CEO of Ipswich wants the players who will be at Portman Road next season to work tirelessly to move the Tractor Boys forward and secure a promotion to the Championship.
“It is potentially a huge football club and I was blown away by the size, heritage and history of Ipswich Town”, Ashton was quoted as saying by TWTD.
“But at the moment we are a Ligue 1 football club and we have to work our socks off to get out of this division.
“We have to recruit players who can do it and players and staff who are absolutely dedicated to this football club and nothing else.
“I moved to the area, the players who come to join this football club and the staff who join this football club have to be part of this community because we are only going to take this club in one direction, and that is forward. “
With major changes to the management and squad at Portman Road, all eyes will be on Ipswich next season as they aim to secure promotion to the Championship.
