A product of Ipswich Town’s academy, which he joined in 2006, Downes made his debut for the club in 2017. After spending some time on loan at Luton Town in 2018, Downes returned to Ipswich and firmly established himself in the first team for the next few seasons.

Club career[edit]

Ipswich Town[edit]

2017–18: Senior debut and loan to Luton Town[edit]

Downes was born in Brentwood, Essex and attended Brentwood School.[4] [5] He joined Ipswich Town at the age of seven,[2] after joining from Ongar Town,[6] signing a two-year scholarship in May 2015.[7] Downes signed a one-year professional contract with the club on 29 June 2017, with the option of a further year.[8] However, after impressing manager Mick McCarthy during pre-season, he signed a new three-year contract with Ipswich on 19 July to keep him at the club until the summer of 2020.[9] He made his professional debut on the opening day of 2017–18, coming on as a substitute for the injured Andre Dozzell in first-half stoppage time in a 1–0 home victory over Birmingham City.[10]

On 31 January 2018, Downes joined League Two leaders Luton Town on loan until the end of 2017–18.[11] He made his debut three days later, starting in Luton’s 1–0 home win over Exeter City.[12] Following the match, manager Nathan Jones said “He was outstanding. It’s as if he lives here in terms of the way he went about the pitch, the confidence he played with, the security and everything he had”.[13] Downes finished the loan with ten appearances,[14] as Luton were promoted to League One after finishing second in League Two.[15]

2018–20: Established in the first team[edit]

Following his return from loan, Downes played regularly for the first team during the 2018–19 season, making 30 appearances across all competitions – ending in the team being relegated to League One.[16] He signed a new three-year contract with the club in March 2019, with the option of a further year, and scored his first professional goal in a 3–2 home victory over Leeds United on the final day of the season.[17][18]

Downes remained a regular player for Ipswich following relegation to League One during the 2019–20 season. He scored his first goal of the season in a 3–0 home win over Shrewsbury Town on 31 August.[19] On 1 December 2019, Downes captained Ipswich for the first time in a FA Cup second round tie against Coventry City, which ended as a 1–1 draw. Aged 20, he became the club’s youngest ever captain.[4]

2020–2021: Desire to leave and squad exclusion[edit]

Following his impressive performances for the Blues, Downes was linked with a move away from the club during summer 2020. On 1 September, the club confirmed that it had rejected two bids for Downes from a Premier League club, widely reported to be Crystal Palace.[20] After the second bid was rejected, Downes reportedly handed in a transfer request and subsequently was left out of the squad for the club’s opening three games.[21]

Downes returned to the first-team on 16 September, coming on as a second-half substitute in an EFL Cup second round tie against Fulham. He continued to feature from the bench for the next few matches, before suffering a knee injury in a 1–1 draw with MK Dons on 3 October, with the injury expected to rule him out of action for two months.[22] Downes made 25 appearances during an injury hit 2020–21 season.[23]

During the summer of 2021, Downes was told by new manager Paul Cook that he was not in his plans for the upcoming season, and was told to train with the club’s U23s.[24] He was subsequently not allocated a squad number for the 2021–22 season and continued to be linked with a move away from the club, with Championship clubs such as AFC Bournemouth, Barnsley and Swansea City being reportedly interested.[25]

Swansea City[edit]

On 10 August 2021, Downes joined Swansea City on a four-year deal, for a fee reportedly around £1.5 million. This ended his 15-year association with Ipswich Town.[26] In the 2021-22 season, Downes completed 92.6% of his 2,465 attempted passes achieving the highest pass-completion rate in the top four divisions in English football for 2021–22.[4]
