Kieran McKenna to stay at Ipswich Town after interest from Manchester United, Chelsea and Brighton

Kieran McKenna, the accomplished 38-year-old coach, is on the brink of committing to Ipswich with a new long-term contract despite enticing interest from several Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, Chelsea, and Brighton. McKenna’s impressive track record includes leading Ipswich to consecutive EFL promotions and their first Premier League campaign in over two decades. Although there were doubts about his future at the club, recent developments suggest he is inclined to stay.

Reports from Sky Sports News revealed that McKenna was a strong contender for the managerial vacancy at Brighton following Roberto De Zerbi’s departure, and Manchester United even held discussions with representatives of the Ipswich boss. Additionally, McKenna’s name surfaced as a potential replacement for Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea.

 However, it was disclosed on Sunday that Chelsea would pursue other options. Furthermore, Ipswich Town’s majority shareholder, Ed Schwartz, traveled from the United States for discussions with club CEO Mark Ashton and McKenna regarding a new contract, indicating a positive direction for McKenna’s future with the newly-promoted club.
