Ipswich manager Roy Keane has been boosted by the news four youngsters have all penned new contracts to stay at Portman Road.
Jack Ainsley, Troy Brown, Reggie Lambe and Ian McLoughlin have all signed one-year deals.
Goalkeeper McLoughlin was on the bench 11 times last season but has yet to make his debut while Ainsley and Lambe featured in the League Cup.
Brown came on as a second-half substitute in the defeat to Sheffield United on the final day of last season.
