Ipswich Town midfielder Tristan Nydam will not return to training until the summer after having further surgery to remove scar tissue around his ankle.

The 20-year-old has been out since breaking his ankle and damaging ligaments in a friendly in July.

Nydam spent part of last season on loan in Scotland with St Johnstone and has played once for Ipswich since May 2018.

"We are looking at pre-season before we expect him to be ready to get on the grass," said club physio Matt Byard.
