On-loan midfielder Jack Colback would like to extend his stay with Ipswich beyond next month.

The 20-year-old was on the scoresheet as Roy Keane's men beat Blackpool 3-1 on Saturday but he is due to return to parent club Sunderland when his half-season loan finishes in January.

"If my loan can be extended I would love to stay longer as it has been a fantastic experience and I'm a better player now than when I arrived," Colbeck told the Evening Star.

"I've not spoken to the manager yet and I don't know his plans but to be here for the rewards I'm sure the second half of the season will bring would be nice.

"I can see the wheels turning now and although reaching the play-offs is a big ask the manager believes it can be done and so do the players."
