Arsenal loanee Tyreece John-Jules has suffered an injury setback that will rule him out for the remainder of the season, according to his manager.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Tyreece John-Jules was believed to be on the verge of a comeback, returning to Ipswich Town after spending time back at Arsenal rehabilitating from a hamstring injury.
But just as it looked like the striker might return to action, he suffered a new setback to his quad.
Ipswich boss Kieran McKenna broke the bad news this week, confirming that John-Jules will now miss the remainder of the season.
“Tyreece John-Jules has had an injury in his rehabilitation to his quadricep that he had an injury on last year,” McKenna explained.
“He’s awaiting a specialist opinion but his season will be finished.
“He won’t be available but hopefully, he can get that rectified to come back strongly as he’s such a talented player and fantastic person. We’re all very disappointed for him.”
John-Jules was a regular for Ipswich Town in the early stages of the season, playing 21 times before the end of October, but his first injury setback put a stop to that progress.
The 22-year-old had to undergo surgery on a significant hamstring injury, and he’s been out of action ever since.
McKenna repeatedly made it clear he was keen to get John-Jules back involved if and when that was possible, telling the media it was a boost simply to have the England u21 international around the squad again.
Unfortunately, the loan spell will now come to an early end, and John-Jules will likely return to Arsenal for further treatment.
League One Ipswich are in the midst of a promotion push, four points off the automatic promotion places. Sitting in third, they’re one of the favourites to make the play-offs if the automatic spots remain out of reach.
