Stern John has admitted that he would jump at the chance to turn his loan move from Crystal Palace to Ipswich into a permanent switch.
John made his debut for Roy Keane`s side in the 2-1 win at Cardiff last weekend after signing on an initial deal until the end of the year but is keen to leave Selhurst Park if possible.
He told the Ipswich Evening Star: "The chance to come to Ipswich was out of the blue but it didn't take me long to decide to come here."
He continued: "I have to take one step at a time, and see what happens in January, but for sure I'd like to stay longer.
"My contract at Crystal Palace ends next summer, though with a possible one-year extension depending on appearances. But I'm a million miles away from that.
"The club has financial problems, and it's in a tricky situation."
