Tottenham wide man Grant Ward could leave in the summer

By Harvey Byrne

Tottenham have announced that young winger Grant Ward has completed a permanent move to Championship side Ipswich.

The club’s official Twitter account revealed on Monday afternoon that the 21-year-old attacker, who spent last season on loan at Rotherham, would transfer to Ipswich after the two clubs had reached an agreement.

It was confirmed by the official Ipswich website that the wide man has joined on a three-year deal with the option of a fourth year, after his contract expired at Tottenham this summer.

The cost of the transfer fee was not disclosed by either club.

The young star won the Rotherham Young Player of the Year award as well as the Goal of the Year award last season after a series of impressive performances for the Millers.

The youngster starred in 43 encounters for the Championship club to help the Yorkshire side avoid relegation by nine points.

Ward joined Tottenham at the age of 16 in 2011, but he failed to make an appearance for the senior team during his stay at White Hart Lane.

In addition to his time at Rotherham, the young star had a loan spell in America with Chicago Fire, while he also joined Coventry at the end of the 2014-15 season on loan.

Mick McCarthy’s side will be looking to return to the top flight next season after finishing in seventh place last season and just missing out on a place in the play offs.
