‘Robbed QPR of a million’, ‘Thank goodness’ – Plenty of Ipswich Town fans offer mixed reactions to player departure
Ipswich Town’s Andre Dozzell left to join QPR on a permanent deal yesterday.
Dozzell, 22, has swapped Ipswich Town for QPR in a deal reported to be worth £1million.
The midfielder has been a long-term target of the Rs’ and he becomes Mark Warburton’s fourth signing of the summer after completing the permanent captures of Sam Field, Charlie Austin and Jordy de Wijs.
It comes after a breakthrough season for Dozzell in which he featured in all but three of his side’s 46 League One outings, having racked up 29 league appearances in the previous two seasons combined.
But Ipswich fans have offered mixed responses online to the departure of Dozzell.
He seemingly split opinion among fans who’ve questioned his work-rate, with some believing that the reported £1million fee is a fine piece of business from the Tractor Boys’ end.
See what these Ipswich Town fans had to say on Twitter about the move:
Some people will cry about it but it's a decent bit of business that 👏👏

I’m not sure efforts is a word to be used here without the words lack of! Hope the qpr defence are ready to defend needless free kicks on the edge of their box due to lazy tracking back!

98 games and 3 goals. Not really "so gutted your going" material is it?

Just been a ‘meh’ player, a lot of hype but has never really delivered, a lot of talk about him ‘playing better with better players around him’ but has never stood out amongst worse players so if it works out for you’s and him, great, if not, then we’ve robbed 1 million for him.
