Presenting the inside scoop on the latest Football League news

QPR man released last summer set to become free agent once again

Former QPR man Tom Carroll is set to be released by Ipswich Town next month.

Carroll, 29, joined Ipswich Town on a one-year deal last summer. But the midfielder would only appear 14 times for the Tractor Boys in League One, and now the club have announced that he’ll be released this summer.

It’s a disappointing end to a disappointing season for the former Spurs man, who’s endured a tough few seasons – he was signed by QPR for a second time in his career ahead of last season but would only last the one campaign.

For the R’s last time round, Carroll featured 22 times in the Championship before being released and subsequently joining Ipswich Town, though he’s now a free agent once again and what the summer will hold for him is anyone’s guess.

A tough break…

Wherever he’s played at, be it Swansea City, QPR or Ipswich Town, Carroll has shown fans that he has great technical ability. He’s a good passer of the ball and someone who can cover a lot of ground, but too often he lacks that cutting edge.

And whilst he’s a technically good player, who doesn’t offer enough steel in the middle of the park which, especially as you go down the leagues, is key.

His fitness record is a cause for concern too, and at 29 years old he really is at a crossroads in his career.

Carroll will surely be eyeing up a new club this summer. But his fitness record may mean he’s forced to settle for another short-term contract.
