Ipswich Town defender Troy Brown is understood to have rejected the offer of a new contract with the Blues and now looks set to leave the club this summer.

Having been one of the many players who were set to be out-of-contract this summer, Brown had previously agreed terms on a new one year deal. However the 20-year-old, who has only made 13 league appearances since joining the Blues on a free transfer in 2009, has now reportedly decided not to put pen to paper on the contract and will instead pursue a career away from Portman Road, with League One Leyton Orient and League Two Rotherham United said to be interested in the Wales U21 international.

It means that Brown looks set to become the 12th player to be released by Ipswich this summer, with the likes of Tom Eastman, Gareth McAuley, Brian Murphy and David Norris also having turned down offers from the club. The loss of both Brown and McAuley means that manager Paul Jewell is left urgently needing to replacements for his defence during the close-season, with Damien Delaney and Tommy Smith the only recognised centre-backs remaining at the club. Aaron Cresswell, Nyron Nosworthy and Danny Woodards are amongst the defenders linked with the Blues so far this summer.
