Ipswich Town has received promising news regarding the condition of Wes Burns, who recently sustained a shoulder injury while on international duty with Wales. Ipswich manager Kieran McKenna has confirmed that surgery is not expected to be necessary for the winger’s injury. Burns, who joined Ipswich from Fleetwood Town in the summer of 2021, has been a crucial player for the club, contributing 23 goals and 20 assists in 100 appearances across all competitions, aiding in their promotion to the Championship last season.
However, his recent international duty resulted in a shoulder injury, raising concerns about the extent of his absence
from the team. McKenna had initially indicated that surgery might be required, which could have kept Burns out for several months, but the latest update is more positive.
Following a consultation with a specialist, it appears that Burns will not require surgery, and the expected recovery time is relatively short. According to McKenna, Ipswich can anticipate having him back around the November international break. This update is certainly a relief for Ipswich Town supporters, as Burns is a key player for the squad, and his absence would have placed added pressure on the team to fill his role.
Ipswich Town currently sits in a promising second place in the Championship after their promotion from League One, winning ten of their 12 league games so far this season. Burns’ potential return will be a welcome development for the club, as he is seen as an essential contributor to their success in the current season.
